So I've decided to revive my log on here....

A little summary to sum up the time between now and my last post. I've completed 8 cycles on 5/3/1 and have been experimenting with the different formats Wendler has suggested. I've just started cycle 9 after a small 3 week layoff due to a hand injury and some crazy hours at work. I decided to shift my focus a bit for the summer on conditioning and body recomp, and try to maintain my strength as much as I can. I took 10% off my cycle 8 maxes and will be ramping back up from there, my current 5/3/1 maxes and 1 RMs are:

Press 162/180
Deadlift 328/385
Bench 232/280
Squat 348/390

I think I shaved off a decent amount to allow me to focus on other things such as body comp and conditioning.

Going to stick to the basic template Wendler recommends and what I have found to work best for me. I've also switched the 5 and 3 week around like in the Reloaded or Powerlifting version. I think the Heavy, Medium, Heavy, Light rotation works better for me.

5/3/1 Lift
BBB Lift

I started back up on Friday.
