Started 5/3/1 Simplest Strength Template on 20 NOV BW @ 190
Using following exercises as main accessory movement:
Close grip bench on OH press days
SLDL on squat days
Incline NG DB bench on bench press days
FS on deadlift days

Other accessories are 3 sets of 10-20 working the muscle not the joints
Hamstrings, lower back and abs on lower body days
Lats, upper back, biceps and triceps on upper body days

Conditioning following the template laid out here: with the following modifications for this 5/3/1 cycle
Running x 3 days a week instead of 5 for now using the following days:
- light recovery run - light, relatively short distance slow pace run
- speed/interval work
- running form drills - unning technique work which would include exercises such as repeats, strides, pacing practice, quick feet/high knee drills or other accessory work

Walking x 2 to 4 days a week - not really conditioning but more to get outside and move around
