    I thought the plan was a 4x a week plan for some reason. I thought it was like squat day, dead day, military dead, bench day

    its the four lifts over a 10 day period or something. You really only lift 3x a week if you follow the original plan. I added a 4th day when I was doing it.

    it is you can spread it over 1 week (7days) or 9-10 days....

    the 5/3/1 book is only $20, if you have a good handle on 5/3/1 then probab not but he does answer a lot of questions regarding 5/3/1 assistance exercises. training only 2X a week, etc. etc.

    ehh it only 20 bones I'd drop it if I was interested, just to make sure I had as much info as possible but you definetly dont NEED it.

    I have it the real 5/3/1 not the training three days a week.

    it is 4x a week, its a good read but its a book on the basics. i read over it a lot, because i usually missed something the first time.

    he does talk about training 3x a week in the book as well.

    For $20 I think its worth it. It's nice to just have it all his ideas in one place.
