There are some really great people here that are way better qualified to help you. I am a 5/3/1 fan. It took me a while to “get it” and I screw it up half the time, but with the help of these guys and gals I have made excellent progress, or at least I think I have.

Welcome !

I’m with ChickenLittle…5/3/1 is a good plan…pay Jim Wendler the $19.95 for his ebook and you’ll have workouts for life…or you could dick around piece mealing it for free…I suggest the $19.95

^ditto for me.

I’m in. I always point people to 5/3/1. It gives a lifter a great foundation.

I’m all about a great foundation.
