5/3/1 with a focus on heavy singles. A meet every 4-5 months. I just did my first meet and totaled an anemic 1130 (370,260,500), but I went very,very,verryyyy conservative and I only had 3 weeks to prepare and hadn't even deadlifted in 6 months prior. I plan to hit 1275-1300 May 19th for my next meet. Hoping for at least 425/300/550, although I see the deadlift being higher by then since I am actually training it regularly now.
I like having a nice physique to go along with my strength goals, but I still need to gain about 12 lbs before May to get into the top of the 242s, so I am taking a carb backloading approach (Have e-book). Been using it for 6 weeks and it is working quite well....weight is up a few lbs and I look the same or possibly slightly leaner (tough to gauge since my body appearance fluctuates so much depending on if I am pounding the carbs or not). All I know is it is NOT like the last time I bulked at all, which got me pretty damn fat.
