Great post, ajm! I haven't started my S&E trial yet, but I've been keeping updated with the main thread as well as yours. I'll probably start in the next couple of weeks. I've been following leangains for almost a year now and my training regimen is very comparable to what you've previously posted. You're post was very inspiring and it's great information. I'll be keeping an eye out for your Wendler 5/3/1 experiences as I've been eyeing that protocol too. By the way, count me in as a blog reader if you ever decide to start one!
