Hi guys, looking for a bit of advice on Jim’s cyber monday sale.
I ran the original 5/3/1 7-8 years ago (I think it may have even been a predecessor, I think I remember there being other Wendler programs in the book, Triumvirate among them) and felt fairly proficient in running it, especially as Jim was good enough to answer a few questions on EFS.
I just competed in strongmman nationals, and now that that’s over I’d like to focus on the core lifts for a while. I bought 531 Forever a few months ago (wish Id waited for this sale, haha), but seems like the 531 program has grown since I was running it/reading about it - joker sets, first set last, etc.
Do I need to get one of the earlier books, and if so, is Beyond 531 the right one, or are there significant changes between the original 531 and the 2nd edition? “Beyond” references Jokers and FSL, but I dont want to junp ahead if what i need is the basics.
Sorry if this is answered elsewhere on the forum, just hoping to take advantage of the sale today.
TL;DR - Best book for someone who’s familiar w 531 amd owns “Forever” - 2nd Ed, “Beyond,” or neither, everything is in Forever, just knuckle down. Thanks
