Background & recent training
Prior to this year, I worked mostly in a Dan John / Simple Strength / Mass Made Simple sort of format. It was decent, but I really wanted more progress.
In early 2017, I started getting ready for my first PL meet, which I completed this fall. Most of that time was spent with a basic 531, 5s PRO + BBB leader / PR sets + FSL anchor. Switched over to 531 Powerlifting program for meet prep.
After the meet, I played around with Coach Thib’s “Fastest Way To Get Jacked”, just as a break from the heavy powerlifting moves. It’s a lot of volume, but I liked the switch.
2018 and forward:
- My aim for the year is to see if I can put on a couple of pounds of LBM, and gradually get my BF% down to 12-ish. Nothing crazy, just want to be able to walk around with some everyday upper arm vascularity, not just after training.
- I’m starting the 531 “Building The Monolith” program now. After that, I’ll see how my progress & recovery are doing. Ideas for later in the year include a cycle of 531 Krypteia, as well as Thib’s “Best Damn…” if I need to dial it back a little.
