What do you think Westside will give you that 5-3-1 wasnt? I am still making steady gains on just about all of my lifts so I have no reason to change up other than my travel schedule makes consistent lifting difficult and slows my progress.
I have no issue with 5-3-1, and may go back to it at some point. I just got bored with my workouts and decided to switch it up.
Dream, after I hurt my back, I started back at just deadlifting 90 lbs. So, I've slowly added 45 lbs back to it. Doing 5-3-1, I was adding 10 lbs a month to my total (as per the program), but now will shoot for adding 5 lbs a week or every two weeks.
