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.
Cool log man I'll be following
125x7 PR+1 Rep.
Incline Bench: Pinkies
185x8 PR+2 Reps.
Mixed Grip Pull Ups:
Took a 30 minute break and ate my first meal of the day around 4:15.
I wanted to try the HCT-12 variable on some accessory lifts.
Close Grip Bench: 16" grip
185x6+2+2+2(185x6 PR+2 Reps.)
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.
215x6 PR+1 Rep.
195x5 PR+1 Rep.
Barbell Rows: Overhand, suicide grip.
Close Grip: 16"
I have never done anything over 185lbs.
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.
Strong benching man. You have a really good incline bench!
