I have been using the 5/3/1 program since the beginning of the year and have made some good progress. I am doing the 4 day a week program with SQ, DL, BP, and Incline BP. I have reset all of my lifts except the squat which is by far my worst lift. Anyways, one of the great things I have found about the program is that it teaches you to grind through reps better and push yourself. However, I have noticed, especially on the squat, that I have lost a lot of speed and just don't have a lot of explosion on it. I was wondering if anyone had thoughts on this before I submit a question to Jim directly. My current setup (and I rotate the assistance every 2-3 waves) looks something like this:
GMs 3 x 8,9,10 (work up on the reps over the wave)
Step Ups 3 x 10
Leg Press 4 x 12
Weighted Back Ext
Thankks in advance for your thoughts.
