Default Jim Wendler 5/3/1 Powerlifting

Jim Wendler has a new book soon to be released, "531 for powerlifting".

In the original 5/3/1 Manual, the weeks look like this:

Week 1: 3 x 5 reps

Week 2: 3 x 3 reps

Week 3: 3 x 5, 3, and 1 rep

Week 4: Deload

It would appear that for powerlifting training Jim has really only made a couple of small changes.

"In 5/3/1 for Powerlifting, I switched week 1 and week 2 around and added a few singles, so it basically looks like this:"

Week 1: 3 x 3, plus a few singles

Week 2: 3 x 5 only perform requisite reps

Week 3: 3 x 5,3,1, plus a few singles

Week 4: Deload only perform requisite reps

This system is superior for powerlifting as it includes the necessary heavy singles, yet by switching the weeks around and only performing requisite reps in week two, you never train heavy two weeks in a row.

Thus, it allows for more overall recovery."

A lot of folks have been wanting to use 5/3/1 for powerlifting competition training and we now have Jim Wendlers recommendation to meet that need.

No, I know Jim said a month again that it was finished and being final edited, I thought it would be out by now.

I am looking forward to the book - hope it comes out soon. Sent a message to ask Jim if there is a release date, have not heard back yet.
