    5/3/1 Routine

    I'm interested in hearing others thoughts on this routine.

    I have a couple of hesitations:
    1) Does strict press really deserve its own day? (I like the squats, DL, and bench)
    2) The concept of going conservative with your numbers in order to allow yourself room to achieve success. Sounds like sandbagging to me.
    3) One month seems like a long cycle to me. I'm considering condensing the program by running more than 4 workouts a week. However, if it works as is, I won't.

    I am by no means knowledgeable on the subject, these are just my initial thoughts. Would like some input from people who have experience running the program.
