07-03-2010, 03:28 PM
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
Wednesday: Bench 5/3/1
Friday: Squat 5/3/1
Sunday: Military Press 5/3/1
My Current maxes are:
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.
Wish you the best with this new agenda bro.

Alright Monday was supposed to be a deadlift day. I ended up getting my new mountain bike onto some trails that day so my legs were very sore, plus my back still doesn't feel to great.
