    I think the most underrated aspect of training is intensity. If you really push yourself when training, you will make gains regardless of the plan (assuming it is a decent plan, of course). If you...

    Your plan sounds great! 5/3/1 is always solid, and does tend to cover all the bases reasonably well. One thing I would keep in mind is that Wendler is a power lifter, and that gives him a slightly...

    You need more seafood and red meat. I think people on these boards tend to over appreciate red meat (hey, it is good stuff) but under emphasize seafood.

    It should be fine. Do you do any carb refeeds? A bunch of potatoes/sweet potatoes/dark chocolate once or twice a week might not be a bad thing.

    At the same time, I was wondering if there was a downside to just doing them every day? They only...
