IBB for legs helped in my squat a good bit. 5/3/1 is good too.

Why post in the thread stating you've already completed this? Lots of people have done so, but you coming in saying you've done so and have thus "won the race" is just coming off as a douche.

Taking a week off this week after all year! I've stalled on some of my lifts too, I'm thinking about using 5/3/1. Just bought and read through the 2nd edition...

@Chris and Pat - what assistance templates are you using? Big but Boring looks like it would help a lot on the squat especially!

I've done it in the deadlift but not squat, because I squat like a bitch. I'll get there but man, squat sucks for me.

I will join in on this, my lifts are miles a way from 315pounds( thats 140kg right? )

My current best in squats and deads are:

deadlift: 1 x 110kg.

squat: 6 x 60kg.

But I am confindent I get there in the future, deadlifts alot sooner than squats offcourse.

Same here. I was going up to 295 but my coach gave me hell because I wasn't reaching parallel. I'm going ATG now but I have to reduce my weight. No biggie.

Do it, 5/3/1 is great. No more thinking about training, you can just go lift and be done with it. Boring but Big is great for getting huge and strong, but if you try it, make sure your eating a SHIT TON of food, or life will be hell.

I'm currently using the layout that's in this article: http://www.T-Nation.com/...college_edition

Basically, it's like this:

Monday:
Deads, chins, row, ab work

Wednesday:
Bench, overhead, shoulder pre-hab, ab work, curls if I feel like it

Friday:
Squat, posterior chain, single leg, farmer's walks (or shrugs if I don't have the room in the gym)

Haha in this too. Just got off Starting Strength with a parallel 230 lbs squat for 3x5 and 240 lbs for 1x5 last workout. Am now on Westside, it will be a while before I reach 3 plates for both of these lifts, hoping to get it before summer.

Not sure, but it definitely does show the "tard" element.

Flor... good work! I'm taking this week off from the gym but looking forward to starting 5/3/1 when I get back!

I'll make it very simple for you. This thread is a race to a 315 squat and deadlift. You deadlift more then this and squat more then this (a little high), therefore, you should not be posting in this forum.
