    cancel that, I just ran out of ink

    But I did go through it and he does talk about 3/5/1. I'm not sure yet, if that's the main setup but he does talk about it. I don't have time to read it right now but I will as soon as I can.

    I heard some rumors about a 5/3/1 for Strongman, has anybody heard if that's actually in the plans?

    CJ Murphy mentioned it a long time ago on EliteFTS but I'm fairly certain he shelved the idea.

    edit: can't find the post and he may still be doing it. Best thing is to ask Murph via the Q&A

    I haven't heard anything, but I don't see why you couldn't.

    I just browsed through the book and even though some of it is similar to the first one, I really like this one better. He really went into detail on alot of things, and showed how to use 3/5/1 to get ready for a meet. Jim also went into detail about geared lifting and meet prep for geared lifters as well, such as circa max training. If there are any 5/3/1 fans, then I highly recommend buying this book.

    yeah even though I'm not a powerlifter (although stepping on that platform isn't out of the question) I think I'll probably buy this one too.

    I just read through a good portion of it at work today. Just in time for the meet in August too. Going to finish my current cycle of 531, run one more cycle, then do the 351 schemes he has up to the meet. Seems like it should be pretty solid and have me ready to hit the numbers I want to hit in August.

    Yes, it will work for just your bench press.

    It's only available as an Ebook currently.

    If you do a little searching here at WBB you'll find a spreadsheet I made a while ago that includes the 3/5/1 with singles version (and the original 5/3/1). Not sure if it matches the new book (I made the spreadsheet >1yr ago) but it should be very close, if not the same.

    I'm on my 5th cycle of 5/3/1 boring but big. I'll definitely have to pick this up.

    I loved 531 for pulling and raw squatting, but I didnt really have success with benching. But still I will purchase the pl version and check it out. For 20 bucks, its worth just the meet prep alone.

    Strangely I've had the same results.

    Can anyone tell me the percentages he has for the singles? I plan to pick this up real soon.
