The Pervertor Challenge

In the spirit of both the Boring But Big Challenge, and the Boring But Strong Challenge, I have created the Pervertor Challenge. As you know, Pervertor combines BBB, BBS, and SSL 5x5, which I feel is a tremendous balance between strength and hypertrophy. Jim says in forever that he really likes the template as well for these same reasons. To add a little fun (and misery) to the mix though, there’s this.

The Pervertor Challenge:
3/5/1 5’s Pro Programming

Cycle 1 (Weeks 1-3)

Add 5lbs to TM for all lifts

Cycle 3 (Weeks 7-9)
85% BBS
75% BBB (70% for Deadlift)
95% 5x5

Thoughts?

Looks pretty tough. Try it and share your results?

That’s the plan
