    5/3/1 BBB template for powerlifting?

    Any of you use the "boring but big" template for 5/3/1? What are your goals? Does the volume help your power lifting goals, or is it more aimed at people looking for some hypertrophy?

    Right now I am using the following:

    Monday: squat, OHP, chins
    Wednesday: bench, GM, dips
    Friday:deadlift, chins, standing cable crunch.

    To me the chins are important to balance pushing with pulling, and the good mornings have been great for my hams/lower back. I've finished my fifth cycle and I've added 10lbs to squat/dead and 5lbs to bench/OHP each month and am still exceeding the minimum number of reps on 5+, 3+ and 1+ sets.

    Would I be better served sticking with my current template or giving BBB a try?

    thanks,

    philip

    As Wendler says, don't major in the minor. The most important part of the program are the big lifts. If you are making progress with your current training then why change?

    I'm definitely inclined to agree with you - it is working and I can't complain!

    I'm mostly curious in the benefits/drawbacks of the BBB template - are there reasons for a power lifter to look at the BBB template or is it primarily aimed at hypertrophy?

    My initial thought is no, not as your sole means of assistance work. But I could very well be wrong. I still think the best way to increase your lifts is to figure out what is holding you back and then attacking it.
