Now, for the negative. I am pretty sure that no one edited this book at all. There are not only basic misspellings rampant throughout the book, but there are also numerous places where random symbols are inserted in the middle of a line. It looks as though it was composed in one format, then copy/pasted into a document in another format, and some kind of translation incompatibility replaced a lot of punctuation with other inappropriate symbols. At times, it actually makes comprehension of a sentence pretty difficult, but generally speaking, it is little more than an annoyance. How much of an annoyance is up to you entirely, but to me it reeks of amateurism.
One of the best things about the program is its flexibility, not only to the daily ups and downs of life but also to different lifters needs. I am 32 years old and fly every week for work, yet I still manage to use the 5/3/1 program for my training (hint: the two days a week method works great).
As an aside, I will suggest a bundle package for anyone buying this book:
1) 5/3/1 - The original
2) 5/3/1 For Powerlifting
3) Starting Strength - Basic Barbell Training by Rippetoe
4) A prowler
5) A spittoon (you'll know why after pushing the prowler and running the big mother hill)

A lot of good information on a reliable power lifting plan. However, there is some dependence on the original 5/3/1 book, and readers need to read that as well. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Jan
