This thread might make a good newb sticky. OR and BTB your posts were spot on.

One thing I have loved about 5/3/1 is that once you get the main lift protocol (the 5/3/1) aspects down, you can adjust the accessories to fit your desires. Since the cycles are only 4 week cycles, I have experimented to find what fits my schedule and life or moves me toward my goals best. 1st cycle I followed the Periodization Bible Template, 2nd wendler's BB template, 3rd and 4th cycles I used a hybrid of 5/3/1 and Baby Got Back. My next cycle, starting tomorrow, will be a fullbody 3 day cycle. The key, is as Steve (BTB) wrote, focus on big lifts, compounds, and build around those.
