Heys guys my name is Drew. My old split was very taxing and my lifts stalled out. So I am giving 5/3/1 a go. I will be doing the four day version. I am 18 years old,weigh about 175lbs and am around 5'10". I have had an injured lower back so deadlifts have been put on hold. My plan is to slowly work my way back into them.

Monday: Deadlift 5/3/1

Tuesday: Rest

Wednesday: Bench 5/3/1

Thursday: Rest

Friday: Squat 5/3/1

Saturday: Rest

Sunday: Military Press 5/3/1

My Current maxes are:

Squat: 265x1
Bench: 250x1
Deadlift: Unkown
Military Press: 145x1

My goals are to

Squat: 275x5 or 300x1
Bench: 275x1(Before 2kool) 225xALOT
Deadlift: Without getting injured
Military Press: BW x1

Lifting starts tomorrow.

Really good day. I got like 4 hours of sleep last night at my friends. I slept on the floor and now my back hurts. I started and ended todays workout with a 1 mile bike ride. As you can see I didn't take 90% of my maxes and use them for the 5/3/1. We'll see how this affects me later on.
