    Default 5/3/1

    Hello everyone, ive been lurking these forums for quite a bit, and asking a questions here and there. Ive been lifting for 6 years and finally trying something different then just plain ol bodybuilding lifestyle. Ive been deployed for a few months and participated in a strenth contest and really enjoyed it, and seems more feasible to do strenth training then bodybuilding. Anyway im trying Jim Wendlers 5/3/1. Ill keep updates as i go along and maybe post a few questions to the few that follow, because help from others is always a great thing. Anyway wish me look and ill keep everyone posted.

    day one down, doing the boring but big setup, trained some traps after. Been worrying that there wasnt enough volume, but today i was shown that the efficeny of this does really work you hard.

    just starting week 3 now. pretty impressed so far, didnt think training based off percentages could make that much of a difference. Biggest thing ive noticed so far, is my ability to control my body weight, pullups can now be done weighted and thats only after 3 weeks, also the ability to control ur body to do a proper contraction on leg raises have drastically improved.
