I really like 5/3/1. I set up my accessory work to be more geared toward physique, while still retaining a few of Jims favorite strength accessory exercises (really liking the results from adding hyperextensions on back day, my lower back feels alot more sturdy, and my pull and form are much better, even my posture is better).
This is my second month of 5/3/1. Its not the perfect powerlifting routine, but I've found it to be perfect for powerbuilding. You're not to burned out to do physique accessory work, like you can be with more intense powerlifting routines (like your first run of a sheiko number).You can wait for tomorrow, I gotta make it happen.

I boosted my maxes A LOT in the first couple of weeks. But if your going to use the one that actually works youll have to pay for it here:

Went from 250x5 to 260x6 on bench in 2 months. My diet was just eating whenever I felt like it. I added dynamic effort benching on military press day.
