The title says it all,
This review is from: 5/3/1: The Simplest and Most Effective Training System to Increase Raw Strength (Paperback)
I am an Elite lifter who was injured pretty seriously using some of the more "in vogue" training methods for years. It was either quit or find a way to get healthy. I dropped the gear and decided to go back to square one. In a sea of both information and misinformation, I had become confused. That's where 5/3/1 comes in. The simplicity of this program makes it a no-brainer. With volume and recovery controls built into the program, it takes out all the guesswork. I have been using the program for 8 months and am now hitting all time personal records, 500x10 in the deadlift for instance, in all of my lifts. This is amazing considering I was barely able to walk at the beginning of this program.
If you want to get strong, like for real, with no gimmicks, look no further. This is straight legit. Plus Jim's own twisted brand of comedy makes it a pleasure to read. I'd recommend it to anyone serious about getting strong whether you are a beginner or pro. It's an essential part of any training library.
