    Keepin it simple Wendler 5-3-1 Log


    IM back havent posted for awhile was busy had a 2 week vacation week before that had family in town just been crazy but im almost finished with my first 5 week cycle.

    4 Main Lifts- Squat, Deadlift,Push Press, Bench Press
    week 1- 65%,75%,85% 3 x 5
    week 2- 70%,80%,90% 3 x 3
    week 3- 75%,85%,95% 5,3,1
    week 4- 40%,50%,60% 3 x 5 (deload)
    week 5 Max, or if u feel its too soon start a new cycle.
    90% of your ORM max is supposed to be used to calculate lifts,

    My own adjustments- i use 95% of bench press max 100% for deadlift and push press. I dont use this routing for squats as i do a BB style leg workout cuz those things are TWIGS. i didnt purchase the book so i dont kno about accessory lifts i just do 10-12 sets of 10 reps...

    Current Maxes
    bench-265
    squat-365
    DL-435
    PP-210

    Due to overtraining and being on vcation not being able to workout alot im on week 3 for Push Press and Bench and Week 4 for Squat, Deadlift. so week 6 will be a new start so far here are my last workouts

    Week 2 Push Press
    150 x 3
    170 x 3
    190 x 4

    3 x 10 55s arnold Press
    upright rows 135 x 3 x 10

    Rear Delt flyes and did various bicep work

    Week 3 deadlift
    315 x 5
    370 x 3
    415 x 1

    v bar rows forget weight i used? 3 x 15
    Decline Lat Rows 4 x 10
    Good Mornings 3 x 10

    anys tommorow is week 3 of bench press will post in the am need to get to sleep. body feels good and rested and ready to hit this workout for awhile also doing alot of carido but eating alot on this cycle hoping to lean out even moree

    Bench Press
    5,3,1 day

    190 x 5
    215 x 3
    240 x 1

    the 240 was easy would been a piece of cake if i hadnt squeezed my shoulder baldes and used powerlifting form. it was moderatly hard using PL form freezing on the chest for a second. but it was easier getting it off my chest... im doing a deload and seeing if i can get 250 for one the week after.

    Accessory work
    Dumbell Bench slightly above flat (works pecs way better)
    60 x 20
    60 x 20

    Incline Dumbell Bench
    50 x 20
    50 x 20

    Decline Chest Press
    180 x 20
    180 x 20

    Cable Crossover
    60 x failure 2 sets

    Reverse Grip Smith Bench
    205 x 8
    225 x 5
    245 x 7 (help on last two)

    Tricep Pulldowns narrow v bar
    80 x 25
    100 x 25
    120 x 25

    Did Obliques and Bottom abs
    and ran 8 minutes on 6mph (not alot of cardio but i do high rep range and rest 30 secs between sets for accesory lifts so heart rates already up)

    tommorows legs still doin the BB leg routine but will post in here anyways

    his article on Tnation layed it out pretty well. the percents for the 5 week cycle were given. and he even stated that adding your own assistance work is fine. the 3 assistance areas were

    Power
    Strength
    Bodybuilding.

    im making sure to not go heavy on any lift and mostly its like circuit training after i finish the power lift. like i used 45s for Dumbell Bench today lol

    Today bench i did the 3 x 5

    190 x 5
    205 x 5
    215 x 5

    felt good on the shoulders kept elbows tucked, good job squeezing the back.

    Reverse Grip smith machine
    185 x 5
    225 x 5
    245 x 5
    275 x 3

    Incline Press machine
    140 x 15
    120 x 20

    Decline Press machine
    120 x 20
    120 x 20

    Flat Dumbell Bench (seat and bench was in slight Incline)
    55 x 15
    45 x 20

    didnt do cable flyes to burnt

    Tricep Pulldowns with short v bar
    70 x 25
    80 x 25
    90 x 25
    100 x 20

    Abs supersetted with 25lb plate curls.


    jcp2- i kno this isnt his layout,but the only thing i went heavy on was reverse Bench and flat bench. the Dumbells and machine were really right i was hitting between 15-25 reps on everything else. so im kinda using the Powerlift to start then finishing with BB a great pump and i can see myself getting leaner.

    Squatted today. 3 x 3 week
    230 x 3
    260 x 3
    300 x 3
    185 x 20
    felt really good had as good depth as last week form was easier to get into. and i had a couple more in the tank for every lift. I wanted to get in some cardio so i burned out on 185 instead of doing hack squat and leg Press.

    Did 5 x 15 leg extentions 130,140,150,160,160
    then did the stairs for 5 mins went up a level every 30 seconds it sucked i was beat by the end couldnt walk

    Tommorow max out on push press. prolly just trying 215 for 1

    thanks man the less i bench the stronger i get on it.. i finally realized that working around 90-95% of ur max anddoing heavy dumbells afterwards isnt always gonna break a plateau. and my squat stance is really improved. the machine squats helped me learn depth and strengthen my quads

    Deadlifted today wasnt really feelin it till i hit my first set t hen my form straighted out.. taking shoes off helped ALOT!

    DL
    315 x 3
    355 x 3
    400 x 2 could have tried for a 3rd but didnt wanna pull anything so played it safe.

    High Cable Pulls/Low Cabll Pulls/ Straight arm ez bar pulldown
    all were 15-25 reps it was pretty much cardio and light weight back workout.

    Did some abs and curls just for a pump thats it.

    Excited about deadlifts going up 425 x 1 is the highest i gotta do this next week then deload i MIGHT run another cycle b4 maxing depending on how 425 feels for 1.

    Tommorow trying to hit push Press if im not too sore lol

    ok so got my jacked today and new protien was suppose to deadlift today, did circuit training cardio yesterday which ****ING SUCKS! cuz my lower back and hamstirings stayed sore but i did deads anyway.

    335 x 5 was so easy perfect form no straps felt amazing
    380 x 3 strapped cuz i was still sore usually dont strap till last set
    425 x FAILED,I KNOW i can get this i struggled near lockout just above knees, lower back was just burned out by this point.

    High face pulls
    80 x 15
    80 x 15
    105 x 10
    105 x 10

    Stiff arm ez bar pulldowns
    55 x 15
    65 x 15
    75 x 15

    Low Rope Pulls
    75 x 10
    85 x 10
    105 x 10
    105 x 10

    Barbell Curls
    115 x 6
    125 x 6

    Cable Curls
    90 x 15

    i was so mad i missed my deadlift at 425 really pissed but i know its because my back was burned out i wanna try 455 soon the highest ive pulled ever is 435 i feel like 455 is a possibility but i dont wanna sike myself out after missing 425.

    gonna take a couple days off and replace some lifts.
    Reverse Grip bench with weighted dips 8,5,3 reps will stay
    Deadlift max set up ??? no idea how to do this. what intervals i wanna go in
    leg day is fine so far.
    Im not doing a day for shoulders- push press hurts my wrist, going heavy for shoulders and bench will not be smart i think im doing good on bench because off the lightened work load..

    might do arnold press, lateral cable raises and upright rows .. maybe a shoulders and bicep day? or just add shoulder work with chest day?

    benched today didnt feel good my shoulder hurt and i didnt sleep enough was kinda hungry.. weights felt heavier then usual but i hate missing workouts and already had 3 days off.

    Bench
    200 x 5 form sweet
    225 x 2 form was sweet didnt push it for 3.
    255 x 0 missed this more than likely bcause of the day
    250 x 1

    my max is 265 this was the 265 pound max cycle i workd up to it from 90% of 265. I think im doing a cycle of strictly floor bench that way it keeps stress of the shoulders builds lockout strength and i can work on rear delts and rotator cuffs while i do that. its a big risk considering it might make me suck on regular bench worse but its worth it.

    INcline Dumbells
    65 x 15
    75 x 8

    Decline Press
    225 x 20
    225 x 20

    Floor Press
    135 x 8
    170 x 5
    185 x 5

    (just wantd to get use to them again)

    Tricep Pulldowns to failur using cables going from just lockout portion to full ROM.

    Deadlifting tommorow thn taking two days of then doing legs and then 2 more days off.
    going to hammer the cardio tho.

    for deads tommorow im thinking.
    work up to a 5 rep max and try one moderately heavy pull.
    Good Mornings 3 x 8
    reverse hypers 3 x 8
    back extentions 3 x 15
    Shrugs 4 x 15
    Farmer walks

    Might Do high rope pulls, Reg rop pulls and stiff arm pulldowns all supersetted. as well

    Bench day today

    warmed up 45 x 20, 135 x 5, 160 x 3
    190 x 3
    215 x 3

    at this point i knew i wouldnt hit a triple at 240 so i tried 245 x 2 but only got it once. So im switching bench day to the Hepburn power and pump routine

    5 x 1 on 245

    Weighted Pullups
    4 x 2 with a 35 pound weight
    4 x 1 with a 45 pound weight
    i took a 30 second rest between sets

    Weighted Dips
    5 x 3 with 115
    took about a minute tops between sets

    Pump Routine (80% of Power work)

    Chest Press
    3 x 6 195 bad reps tho

    Tricep pulldowns
    3 x 6 on 65 pounds

    3 x 6 bodyweight pullups

    switched up the routine because ive made good gains for the last 2.5 months on wendlers 5/3/1 for reps muscular endurance with goin pretty heavy. Tremendous Squat gains. However my bench is at the part where singles would benifit it more, Deadlifts the 5 reps till a ORM of a platform suggested by JCP2 is working really good. However Squats im loving the 5/3/1 so im keeping that for leg day. From now on Routine will look like this

    Squats 5/3/1
    Leg Extentions 20,15,10,5
    Hamstring Curls 3 x 8
    Calf Raises 4 x 25

    thats how its basically looked for awhile now no changes keeping the 5/3/1 routine. i feel it working real well.

    Deadlift
    i just call it 51. simply hit a 5 rep max of the platfrom and a ORM max after that. moving up slowly but steadly every week

    Reverse Hypers for the lower back 3 x 8

    Dumbell Rows 5 x 10, saw an efits arcticle which Wendler said he does this on deadlift day for grib strength and some back work. So it wont be over traning

    i wanted to add a pump routine to this so im supersetting Low rope pulls, High Rope pulls and Stiff ARm pulldowns 3 x 15.. Although i added this in completely myself i feel it wont be OT because all the weights used is under 100 lbs and form is the main focus.

    Bench Days
    5-8 sets of one rep of a 3 rep max once u work up to 8 x 1 u move up 5-10 pounds

    same scheme for Weighted Pullups however i do the first 4 sets 4 x 2 and last four 4 x 1.
    Weightd Dips 5 x 3 gives me explosive power to lockout on bench

    Hepburns routine is all 5-8 x 1 on those 3 lifts using a 3 rep max. However i feel thats too much to go that heavy for dips and pullups. So i changed it up. 5 x 3 on dips really lets me add weight and get strong Tris. The Weighted Pullups i just used that scheme to get stronger at em and explosive. IdK what pullups are good for tho??? I feel like im going less heavy then required for the Dips and Pullups but its juts for a OT caution..

    Pump- i will use differnt lifts but still mainly the focus will be a pump for the chest,Tris, and always using pullups because i suck at em and wanna make them better.

    You just gotta pull a heavy single don't you, lol. 4 is higher than i would have gone because most people will have to alter their form too much.
