    5/3/1 and Bodybuilding

    Time for something fresh, after doing the awesome 12 week program by Jim Stoppani ' 12 Week Shortcut to Size '. I am going for a Jim Wendler routine now for a few months. http://www.jimwendler.com/2014/07/bo...ong-challenge/

    Going back to 5/3/1 for awhile now. Will try out the Bodybuilding routine for three months, and then will switch to the BBB routine after that;

    - Bench Press 1RM = 200lbs
    - Deadlift 1RM = 270lbs
