I agree with everyon'es posts so far. There really are no cons. I really like having my weekly goals set out in black and white. I know, that as long as I meet my prescribed reps, that I am progressing. I am now on cycle 6 and still progressing. I am positive that I can run this for at least 6 more cycles and still progress. I think the long term progression is just awesome. It really keeps me motivated. 5/3/1 is going to help me achieve a 500 lb deadlift within a year. I started out at nothing really. I had only started doing deads just before I started 531. How can anyone criticize a routine that can do that?
