robertscott - I remember that article, because I had thought about wanting to try it, but when I went back I couldn't find it... maybe I'm just slow, but do you have a link to it?

I have been doing this with some of my lifts with the 5/3/1 and I have seen great results. Jim Wendler recommends this in his "Boring but Big" template. I dont keep the exact same motion but will so a similar movement for high reps, like following my heavy BB bench with higher reps for DB bench. I f...

Thanks folks - so how long to wait - the doctor said a week, is that long enough? Is there anything I should do differently when I start up again?

I came across this article - any truth to this?

a very SORE topic

First off, apologies if this is an inappropriate question so feel free to remove if I am over the line on this one. The other day (Monday), after setting a PR for squats I felt no small amount of "discomfort." After a visit to the Doctor I was told that the strain caused a hemorrhoid to pop up. I un...

Bacchus' Journal

Hey all - so i have been reading the posts, and occasionally posting since about a year ago, this year I have decided to start posting my logs. Hoping to get some good feedback, and who knows, maybe it will also help someone else. Starting after the New Year I started a 5/3/1 template with a two day...

LOL - last week I split days two and three up (because I wasn't ready to squat yet on my ankle) and I was just working up to a 5 max to see where my starting points were - so the answer is I dont know, I'll tell you on Friday :lol: But yes I am a little worried, but I figured it was the best way to ...

Hey Folks - Thanks for your help on this one - I just wanted to let everyone know what I landed on for this - maybe someone down the line will find it helpful. And of course feedback always appreciated. 20 rep squats went out the window when I blew out my ankle in the first play of our last match of...

I really like the look of the 5/3/1, thanks for putting me onto it, but the 20 rep plan still loooks appealing in its brutality :)

Decision time soon :)

One more match!

Thanks Robert - Funny you should say that, because the other option was just to do starting strength, which would be pretty much exactly what you said, heavy squats, deadlifts and power cleans. I have never done power cleans before, so that is bit of a concern, but I do really want to learn (I actua...

20 Rep Squat Routine

Hey all - I am wrapping up my fall rugby season and have about three months to hit the gym hard before the spring season starts. I have been out of the weight room for about 3 months because with practice and games I thought I just wouldn't be able to recover, so I have lost a fair amount of strengt...
