Jim Wendler wrote:So I finally finished the 5/3/1 for Powerlifting book today. I'm gonna go help build a chopper this weekend and come back to it and make sure it's what I want - and then send it to get edited. So far, I am very pleased with it as it is very easy to understand and very easy to implement.

Here is the table of contents for the 5/3/1 for Powerlifting book...

* A Declaration
* 5/3/1 Training
* 5/3/1 for Powerlifting: An Overview
* Off Season Training
* Pre Meet Training
* Meet Prep Training
* N.O.V Powerlifting
* Training for the Non Competitive Powerlifter
* Old Man Winter: Training for Mr. Gray Pubes
* Assistance Work
* To Pause or Not to Pause- The Bench Press
* Using Knee Wraps
* Box Squats vs. Free Squats
* Choosing a Shoe
* Squatting in Gear
* Benching in a Shirt
* Deadlifting in a Suit
* Rich T. Baggins Squat Cycle
* Circa Max Training
* Your First Powerlifting Meet
* Meet Checklist

Right now it's 106 pages. A lot of broken brain cells were revived during this creation. Next book - N.O.V; this is the one that is gonna have all the conditioning and everything I can think of in it. Yoke and neck work, conditioning, real training, mini-articles, and everything else. Just want to spread the truth and the word in an industry that forgot that it should be Private Reich instead of Corporal Klinger.

I still and hopefully will always feel like that pissed off 16 year old kid with a chip on my shoulder. May the passion to prove the world wrong and do what it is necessary to move forward and kick ass never die.

Revolucion! Vive NOV, carron!

I'll probably be getting the book ASAP.
After my PL meet in ten days, I'm switching to 5/3/1 for some time. Really like the simple basic approach and the flexibility. I'll be adding in some finishers (prowler, farmerwalk, CF-type metcon) which fits in perfectly.
Really like Wendler's writing style.

Yeah, he's a funny fucker for sure.

Well, I'm liking 5/3/1 so far. I need a program designed by someone else to follow as I can't help but mess with my own too much. I think a lot of PTs, coaches etc are like that... at least that's what I'm sticking too.

It's simple and basic with plenty of room to fuck about while still getting steady progress in the big lifts. Win.

Was about to post a thread asking peoples views on the wendler 5/3/1 but thought I'd be lazy and just bump this one... anyone tried it and followed it through properly?

Det I'm on my 3rd cycle. I really like it. I need to have a program created by someone else (most of it anyway) to make progress else I tend to mess about with it too much.

I'm poor with pressing work, esp bench & military, so I'm really hoping this prog will help. So far it's actually been real tough as progress is not as I had hoped on those two lifts. In fact, I will be going back to cycle 1 weights and simply starting again, but ensuring I beat all the rep PRs.

For my deadlifts & squats it's going really well. On Tues I did 11 reps of 155kg which is a PR. The prog keeps you away from 1RMs for quite a few cycles on exercises with heavy weights (squats & deads for most people). That way in a few cycles time when I'm nearing my last tested PR I'll be smashing it hopefully.

11 reps at 155kg is pretty awesome. What weight are you?

I see that in my absence everyone has gone over to PL these days. Good stuff! :-D

5/3/1 is not a system for powerlifting at all. Pretty far from actually. Frequency is far too low for one and it'll take most people around six months or more to get down below 5 reps on their main exercises.

Between 70-72kg. Trying to get heavier with lean muscle.

Mmm, that's disappointing to hear Scott... I hope no one who competes is darkside, though I realise that in the world of sport, that is of course inevitable, so I guess one never knows when you line up in a competition how many of those have gained unfair advantage...

Well, I'm with you. I do this for health (though I realise that powerlifting is a bit more dangerous for joint health etc., and one has little margin for error when doing maximal lifts...) so I'll always be 100% clean. Maybe if I'm 50 and feel like I'm starting to go downhill that might change, I suppose. One can only slow, not halt, the decline in hormonal profile. However at 29 I feel just as lively and crazy as I did at 16, so it is all good! (And progressing better than ever before too. Recovery is better/faster than ever...).

If anything I hardly take any supplements these days either. Just multi vitamin, whey protein concentrate, ultra fine oats, and milk protein concentrate. Occasionally taurine etc. if I feel like a pre-workout boost. But mostly it is too much hassle, so just a bit of protein and carbs for me, and plenty of real food!

And 11 reps at 155kg is a good target. We must be pretty damn close on strength I suspect - though you're undoubtedly leaner than me - I'm working on it!

Might give the 155kg challenge a go next time I do a deadlift workout. Way outside my normal rep range - I've been training sets of 3! Pretty confident I could do 6-8, I imagine it will start getting rather nasty after that!

I did 9 with 162.5kg the other day which I feel is better.

People do what they wanna do. We live in a society of "I want it all and I want it now!"

I don't really care if people decide to use AAS etc, but I lose all respect for them if they compete in a sport where such use is banned.

They're not all on it, but I know some will be. Most top level athletes are genetic freaks that don't need drug use. They were born fast/strong etc.

I agree, I know people who are bigger, stronger and faster than any gearheads I've met; they are blessed people who work bloody hard to be even better and it's an insult to believe it comes out of a bottle.

I think those who can't quite make it would like to believe that drugs are the difference and they're deluded.

9 @ 162.5kg is a sersiously sterling effort Scott. I've done 4 * 5 * 165kg before, so I reckon I could get close, but that would be an extraordinarily painful set.

I did however do 25 * 80kg on squats today (at end of session), which I feel is pretty decent tonnage, and was incredibly nasty :-D

Just for reference, there's been a repout contest with 100kg at my gym. Best so far is 65 reps by a guy weighing just over 100kg himself. My TP (who's actually mostly a CFer) did 40 at 78kg BW. I believe there was a 71kg guy that hit 38 reps.

A hammer thrower friend of mine from Holland was doing 100kg bench press x 36 reps. There are a few beasts out there!

Thats crazy. Most I've managed was something like 23 after doing very heavy 1RM sets at around 160kg-170kg so it made 100kg seem light as a feather.
