If you can add weight to the bar every week, by all means do it. I cannot do that anymore and 5/3/1 has been a godsent for me lately.
Thats exactly the issue I was having. 5/3/1 is fantastic, but for a novice that can barely squat a bar with his bodyweight on it, adding weight weekly is still possible. I want to do that for as long as I can before I jump onto something more sophisticated with slower progression. I'm sorry my terminology irritated you, but I'm rather enjoying my new routine.
