Re: The mixed grip deadlift problem

Here is what I do. I do 5/3/1. I warm up with the standard grip, and then switch to mixed grip once I hit my first working set. THen I switch to mixed grip, and ONLY do it the one way. When I am adding in some volume work(ie boring but big template), I will alternate grips. Typically going back and ...

Re: 5/3/1 BBB workout - comments or suggestions?

Any of the 5x10 of the big lifts are done at different percents. I think it starts at 55% and moves up with the different weeks. I liked it, but boy does it where you out after awhile. I've done a few different variations of 5/3/1 and I like it second best to the rest pause template.

Re: 5/3/1 twice a week.

i finished my first cycle now. i really like the rest pause sets. they are not taking much time and it seems they're good for hypertrophy. at least my father told me some days ago "you have build some muscles". i could also improve the deadlift a bit. i will keep on doing this program. The rest pau...

Re: Question about exercise sequence in the templates

I would say it has to do with recovery.

Re: 5/3/1 twice a week.

in the article wendler writes you should use rest-pause for the bench, press, chin up and the arm work. but why is there only data for rest-pause for bench and press in the tables of the article and just 1 set + warm up sets of the assistance work? how do you do it? THe big lifts go by the 5/3/1 se...

Re: 5/3/1 twice a week.

Im following the rest-pase template links in the post above. I do the accessories exactly how they recommend, but I usually add in 3 sets of db shrugs at the end of day 2 because I feel like I need it. I feel like this routine is working for me and I'm the strongest I've ever been. I'll tell you how...

Re: 5/3/1 twice a week.

Yes, I would have been completing cycle 4 but I got sick so my second day of 5/3/1 will continue next week. I like it a lot! I've learned a few things. 1.) You need to space out the lifts. I've figured out that if I lift on Monday, and then on Wednesday, my legs are still sore from squats. So I push...

Re: 5/3/1 twice a week.

This. pretty sure there's a 2 day template online somewhere I'm not talking about the one wouter posted yes, I've read the book that shows it, but it never references where to put the...

5/3/1 twice a week.

I've been doing Wendler's 5/3/1 for about 10 months now. For awhile, doing the strict routine. As of lately, I've ben running into some issues. I'm only able to go to the gym twice a week. Training a lift every 14 days hasn't been great. I didn't start out wanting to do this, but life gets in the wa...

Re: What I got out of 5/3/1, 18 months later

Been doing 5/3/1 in some way shape or form since spring time of last year. Definitely "repping" more weight than I was before with other routines but I'm not sure that was the 5/3/1 or just progression in general. I started really low to get the most of it, and I feel like it's really starting to co...

Re: Gun Control

"Funny thing is, there is always the argument of these kids being able to buy firearms illegally. That sheltered, nerdy white kid from suburbia isn't going to "the hood" to buy a gun.
