As title says, goal is to get stronger and better conditioned this summer. Will be doing 5/3/1 to get there, lifting 4 days per week. I ran the program for a long time before and switched off to mountain dog style training for several months to add some size and change it up. Now its back to the roots that are Wendler’s 5/3/1. Haven’t done any maximal strength work since December of 2013 where I did a meet and hit 405 squat, 265 bench, 530 dead. Thus I will take my TM very conservatively (80-85% of perceived max, rather than 90%). Also going to be using front squats as they have become a favorite of mine. Stats are 6’2 at 215 pounds 23 years old.
Front Squat: 265
Here we go!
