Thoughts on 5/3/1?

I’ve got a few months left of weekly(ish) personal training sessions, and am starting to think about how I want to use them and what I’m going to do when I’m back on my own.

It’s almost time for a cutting phase, so I think I’ll start reducing my calories via carbs and let my work with Justin keep me motivated in the gym through that inevitably difficult time.  That means that when I lose him, I’ll be back into a muscle gain phase, which is something I’m more comfortable with.

I know a LOT of people do Stronglifts 5x5 and I’ve seen a few other programs around, but what’s the word on Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1? It seems pretty basic - straightforward with minimal room for error, providing you work hard. Anybody tried it and have feedback to share?

    5/3/1 is really cut out more for advanced lifters. I’d recommend that you milk SL5x5 or Starting Strength for all it’s...
