    A little bit of progress I think. My bis grew a bit which is funny since i do much less bicep work on 5/3/1. I love the program and plan on sticking with it for a while. I switched from 4 days a week on the old routine to 3 days a week on 5/3/1 which works a lot better for me. My workouts are much more intense. It's great.

    I need to put in that 15% of effort toward diet to get cut up for the summer. After summer I'll do a proper bulk.

    I ate like shit and drank a lot this weekend so this isn't the best time to be taking these, probably should have done it on Tuesday after lifting.

    Ummm... one month isn't really deserving of a progress picture thread.

    I guess it's more giving a +1 to 5/3/1 :dunno: And see if there are any specific secondary lifts people think i should be doing.

    is it advisable to do this program if you don't have a spotter?

    I definitely wouldn't describe it like that. You're liable to fuck shit up if that's how you do it.

    Start the movement with your hips and stick your ass out, the rest will follow

    at first I was inclined to just say "google it, fgt".

    Instead I tried to describe it, and did a piss poor jerb. Yours was more accurate.

    and if you saw my ass, you'd know I was doing it right :kdubb:
