Wendler 5/3/1

I'm looking at it thinking way too little work. Nothing to failure, only 3 sets, once a week per lift? 65%x5 and 70%x3? What would the point of that be? That's barely a warmup set.

OTOH, the various meathead fora seem to love it.


Thoughts? What am I missing?

No way that can provide decent results for growth. Maintenance maybe, but that sure seems to good to be true. I just found a diet guaranteed to help me lose 10 pounds eating only ice cream. I'm gonna give that a try.

If you are Lactose intolerant, that would surely work!

So, after lifting every day, always to failure for the last 2 months and finally hitting a wall, I'm gonna try this.
