So I saw that Jim Wendler released a new version of 5/3/1 and with the holidays and work ive been looking for something simpler and shorter for my training so I decided to finally give it a shot.
I usually am not one for set programs so im probably going to stray a bit on the accessory work, but...
I am a big fan of the 5/3/1 routine, will try out this revised version that Jim Wendler posted earlier this year, looks very interesting and fun :drooling:
It is done 4 days per week, and three cycles...
new to the forum , ive been following jim wendler's 5/3/1 program for about 2 months now,all my lifts have gone up , now as im approaching football season im cutting down on weight room work and upping the conditioning..

Hi all. I was looking for a place to post my journal. Saw Big Tone posting here so figured my presence couldn't make it any worse. :evillaugh:
I'm a 42 year old powerlifter. I started about 4-5 years ago and have competed a couple of times, though it has been about a year and a half because...
So, yesterday i started training westside. i'm definetely still learning and reading. i don't go to school or work right now, so i'm hoping to progress fairly quick, learn, and see some decent strength gains. i'll post my weight and height later tonight, after i weigh myself at the gym. yesterday i...
How I got started benching
So I am going take ya back to when I started to bench. First off I had two horrible experinces growing up trying to workout. First one I was about 7 years old. I saw a video of Hulk Hogan and I thought man I want to be as big as him. So I thought it would be a good idea...
It's been a while since I posted last. After my last contest on April 28th I took 2 weeks off training and diet to let me body and mind rest and relax from the 6 months of contest prep. If you read my contest journal you know I had a great showing at my last contest and looked the best I have ever...
Hey guys, this is my first post! I've been keeping a private log for a while, and I recently started a log on a different site. It seems that more people on this website are interested in powerlifting and natural lifting than the other one though, so I'm going to start posting here!
Here are my...
Because Brian said it was a good idea to post this here, This is just a copy of mine at supertraining.com, so it's the same thing obviously for whoever reads that.
My next meet is still going to be raw full-power, so that is what I am focusing on. I'm trying to learn a bench shirt and once in...

Well then... i have to keep a journal somewhere... and at this point i cant even tell if my posts on the other forum are even there... so i'll start a temporary journal here. Might just turn into a permanent one. It was either here or at Pendlay forum, and though i AM a weightlifter before i am a...
Hi everyone! I have been lurking around the site for a bit and really want to make a log and join the diverse group of lifters posting here. A little about me:
Weight: 110-113 note: I have competed twice in the 114 class and now plan to cut weight to 105 for my April 2013...
Hey guys, I'm starting my very first journal so feel free to leave me a post whenever you visit. I'd appreciate all of the criticism and tips you guys might have. I'm 16 years old, 141 lbs, and 5'7". My goals are primarily to get stronger, but I am also trying to gain as much lean body mass as I...

6px1(WRAPS HERE OUT)
Hoping to go 2500 before this year is out.
Beginning a new log, kind of a bad time because I am feeling beat up at the moment and will look to deload in a couple of weeks but oh well. Current supplements are Results,Protein,Fish oil and Flax seed oil. I was involved in powerlifting about 12-15 years ago and stepped away due to life and kids...
I've never done one of these things so I figured maybe it'll help me hold myself accountable if it's out there on the web. Today I started the 531 program. My goals are to get stronger, plain and simple. I'm new to all of this, so if anyone happens to read this and see something I'm doing...
Well due to several reasons ive fallen out of the competition i was going to enter. Now my plan is to do a lean bulk until late july or august when i should be shipping off to basic. My plan for this bulk is to take in around 4000 calories and around 200 grams of protein. My workouts will be...
Training for the 2010 USAPL PA States most likely.
Typically follow a Westside-style routine to increase GPP and to increase raw lifts immediately following a meet. Then start to increase intensity on lifts that will help the equipped 3 lifts. Then peak with a modified Sheiko CMS/MS routine. ...

Several weeks ago i did my first comp after a 2yr layoff going 950-605-735-2290 @275, which qualified me for APF nationals in June. I have a long way to go to get back into PR territory for my squat, bench and total but after taking a week off after the meet, i am getting back into my training.
I try to keep track of stuff on my phone and it works awfully, so here I am.
Be very fit for Tough Mudder on Sept 29, 2012.

Figured I'd start a new journal here. I have a meet in just over 2 weeks(Feb 14th). I have been maintaining my bodyweight at right around 153 for the past 6 weeks or so and I will compete @148 and hopefully rehydrate back up to at least 153. My goal is to squat 600+ and total Elite. Here are a...
Decided to start a new log, since I haven't been doing 5/3/1 for a long time and the title of the other one didn't match what I was doing.
I couldn't think of a good name, so I picked "danki's Cluster F$#* Log", because I do a lot of clusters in my training, and it is sometimes random.
I am 16 weeks out from APF Senior Nationals and will be starting my training cycle next week. Looking forward to getting back at it.

Warm Up: Foam Roll, Ham/Quad/Groin/Hips, Indian Clubs, DB Front/Lateral Raises, Cuff Rotations, Mini Band Back Work
Since all the forums out there suck, and I've been using ALN stuff for a while now, I figured I would throw a training log up here.
We have a small private gym/Barbell Club in Huntsville, AL called Deep South Barbell. We currently train out of the shop behind my house, but will likely be moving...
Use to be over at FI but seems its gone now, so ima try and keep up with some of this again. Been awhile since ive been online with a log. Mainly just focusin on bench lately but started squattin again and pull again soon. Heres the last few i remember.
Pretty new to this forum. I've spent the last 3 or so years working out, the first 18 months or so pretty regularly, got my strength up to a decent point. Last 18 months I trained maybe 2x/week, switched routines a bunch of times, rehabbed a couple of niggling little injuries, and...
It's been awhile since I've been on here, but I remember learning a TON from people here when I started competing in powerlifting (back in 2007). I'm hoping to document some of my training to possibly inspire others and push myself beyond my limits.
Some background info:
38 years old
Alright so I'm starting a new journal because my training has moved to a whole other level this past year my old journal had some newbie workouts in it clear back from when I was in high school haha.

I been keeping a journal on FI but, that place seems to have caught internet AIDS, so I'm stalking Tone and came here. Been lifting almost 10 years, and have done 3 powerlifting meets. last one was oct 10. I lift using 5/3/1 triumvirate, most of my training is focused on on fighting though. I train...
Right, here goes.
Been training the last six months, but only at home and with little space, equipment or idea, except that squats, deads and benches are good.
Joined a local gym (bargain student price) and today was my first time down there. Left my mrs to do her cardio on the bikes and I...
New guy here, thought I'd introduce myself and get a log going.
I'm an amateur raw powerlifter... done three meets so far, and my meet PRs are 455, 270, and 500. Those were all from October 2011-January 2012... I haven't done a competition since then, for some pretty poor reasons. ...

After a couple years of really crappy curl jockey training, I finally found this site, and got my act together. The date I registered, just a little over a year ago, was the day I started my new lifestyle, with the help of all of you. 'Could go on with a crappy long story, but I'll cut to the...
