    Anyone can gain 30-35lbs, or 130lbs, or even 230lbs. Just overeat for years and don't train at all, like all the whale-like people wheezing and waddling around. Your doctor will become alarmed.

    If you have stopped progressing in a linear fashion, eg + 5lbs a week on big lifts, then I think your best bet is 5 3 1 plus the 5 3 1 Boring But Big assistance template for real size:

    Noticed last week/5 wave, and not for the first time, that at the top set, was already tired from the reps on the way up. So AMRAP or Joker singles...

    15 reps for your 5 rep set is not a big deal. You are still getting stronger. Wendler discusses this in his original 5 3 1 ebook.
