We received the new 5/3/1 Forever book back today for review; I am currently reading over the book to make sure it reads right and check (once again) for errors.  In doing so, I came upon this passage.  Scattered through the dozens and dozens of programs, there are little gems like this. This excerpt is about people using supplemental lifts such as front squats, deficit deads and floor press in the 5/3/1 program. 


"Remember that not every 5/3/1 program has a supplemental lift. Also remember that there is a faction of never-have-beens that love to talk about “finding your weakness” or other some nonsense that helps cover up for the fact that they know shit about training and programming. You can always follow the trail of turds these charlatans leave behind by looking for things like, “front squats will help your deadlift” and “pause squats are probably the answer!” and people who preach the hip thrust gimmick. I’m actually laughing out loud right now. Using a different supplemental exercise has it’s
place but if you are weak as piss and can’t do basic stuff like 10 chin-ups, 20 perfect hanging leg raises, actually perform some kind of mile run without choking on your tongue or clipping your own feet, let’s save the bullshit for later. Until you have some basic level of strength and some kind of fitness level, you don’t need anything different. Your weakness is you aren’t strong and you aren’t in shape. Your weakness is listening to idiots – fix that before you add deficit pulls with chains to help your speed off the floor.
People’s weak points are rarely muscles. It is almost always their head, their heart or their lack of discipline and/or consistency."

How Does A Pre Sale Work?

  • Orders are taken before the books are printed.  You receive a discount because we appreciate your support and also to compensate for the longer wait time.
  • Books are then printed to fulfill the orders - this can take 7-10 days. 
  • After the books are printed they ship out.  
  • So it takes longer to receive your purchase from a pre sale but you get a great deal and we don't run out of books.  Your entire purchase will ship together when the book is ready to go out.  We will do our best to keep you informed along the way.
