They lost me at:
Before getting on the treadmill, I put on my weight lifting belt backward so the part that's normally on my lower back is on my belly. This will warm up the area and keep it warm as exercise begins.
Really ?

Simple
Except that his whole point is that he can't work out in the afternoon or evening.

I knew I had read this somewhere. Wendler's Blog is likely it. I think it is in his e-book, but also, he mentions it in this article on T-nation, but here he is talking about doing 5/3/1 two days a week, I have seen him say this in a few places though. http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/mo...

Wendler talks about doing 3-days of hard conditioning each week along with 5/3/1. He talks about doing hills and prowler runs, not complexes, but that shouldn't make a difference, except that your legs might be a bit less taxed from a complex session than they would from running hill sprints. Possib...

LOL - Yes thats the goal. For me I think I need to get a bit leaner. I put on a good 20 lbs going into the last season, a lot of lean weight, but not all, so that cost me a step speed-wise. so now I want to keep the pounds on and get lean with a focus on increasing speed. If I can add a little lean ...
