    I've just started on a 5/3/1 routine and, not being that experienced in it (and really busy at work so not having the time to spend ages researching it) I've downloaded the Wendler 5/3/1 app for my phone... I noticed you said about a version and I wondered if you're using the app too?

    obviously you're doing a lot more than what's detailed in the app but, if you are using it, I just wondered what you thought of it?

    anyway, you seem to be consitently smashing the sessions in so great work danki!
    Age: 41 - Height: 5'10" - Weight: 192lb (NOT LEAN! (but maybe finally getting a little bit leaner?))

    Squat: 180kg (396lb) x 2
    Front Squat: 100kg (220lb) 5 x 5
    Zercher Squat: 140kg (308lbs) x 1
    Bench Press: 110kg (242lb) x 1
    Deadlift: 220kg (484lb) x 1
    SLDL: 170kg (374lb) x 1
