    Beyond wendler 5/3/1


    Any one try this program yet? I am currently reading his wendler 5/3/1 book although I heard his new book is nothing like the old one. I have seen some YouTube videos of people running his program but they say there is hundreds of different variations you can set up. Don't be scared to post a PDF download link if you have it

    He contradicts himself in this book, its very volume based on the big lifts, as for the old books he basically says just lift thise sets and deload

    I've got both. The first was a great place to start. Simple, short, an effective. I like the new book because it is just different templates and ideas with brief descriptions. No heavy analysis or science, just different ideas of things to incorporate. Just don't think your gonna use all, or even most of them. I picked out two things right away and that's it.

    Beyond 5/3/1 isn't a program itself. It's more like a list of amendments to his original books. It's just a book full of ideas

    Bingo. It's for the more advanced lifter and very much aimed at the competitive lifter. 5/3/1 is very easy to understand and you can get the principles in 10 minutes. Beyond 5/3/1 is much more complex and not for the novice.
