View Full Version : Wendler's Max Effort Method

I know a lot of people myself included have used Jim Wnedler's 5/3/1 program but I was wondering if anyone has used his Max Effort Method program. A friend of mine gave me copy of the program and I'm about to read it but I was wondering what the results have been for those who have ran the program before.

I don't think it's really a "program" per se, it's just talking about how to implement max effort training into the westside/conjugate template. I think it is a good. Some good things to learn in there.

I would also suggest buying a copy of it since it is something EFS sells.

That program he wrote was pretty much just a detailed guide to the max effort portion of the Westside standard template, what movements to use, how to work up, different percentages and waves, etc. It's not really a set program, like in the 5/3/1 sense. As far as results, just look around this site alone at the people who use a Westside template with max effort training... it gets you strong.
