What Do You Recommend Next? (About to Finish BBB)


Hey Jim love your book 5/3/1, just about to finish the BBB and want to know which program you recommend to do next for strength and size.



I would recommend 5/3/1. Sorry for the smartass answer, but any template will help based on the goals you’ve described above, you’re going to need to be a lot more specific.

There’s a lot of info and examples in the Beyond 5/3/1 book about longer term planning and programming to check out. If you only have the first book definitely pick up Beyond.


Is there a reason you can’t continue with BBB? Did you do it for 3 months?


Probably the 3 months challenge.

This is where the 5/2 would shine.


The Strength Challenge from Beyond 5/3/1 would be a good follow-up to a BBB phase
