Anyone use this template yet?Wendler wrote a manual on it and has had some great success with it.Just curious as if anyone is or has used it.I assume the concept is,
From what Ive read ,Jim does bench,deadlift,military,squat.But he's only doing 3 days a week,all getting a seperate day,so theres carryover.He doesnt belive in speed work,so I dont know how he plans his bench days.
Sounds interesting, I should give it a try
500lbs bench, here I come!!!
Yes and No. That is one variation of the method that is out of sequence from the way it was intended and the deload percentages are different.
Buy the e-book.
did you guys see what Jim did on dips last week?
23 years old
6'3, 308 lbs
Warmup however you need to. I started my first cycle using 90 lbs less than my best meet deadlift (50 pounds for good measure and 40 lbs for help from the deadlift suit) and the working sets are still challenging. Ere on the side of going light is the key to making progress with this.
Im starting Monday.Already figured out my weights for the next 3 weeks.Cant wait to get into the 5 rep deads.
I've been using 5/3/1 for my squat since about May of this year. I really like it and it's helped me get out of a rut that I was stuck in for a long time.

I love it, and have been doing it a few months. I bought the book and didn't think much of it initially, but after looking back on it multiple times, it's definitely worth the cash. I suggest anyone who wants to try this out, give buying the book a thought.
