[quote="ninearms"]What's drawing you towards the Juggernaut Method? I read the book and to me it looks like 5/3/1 with all the built-in flexibility removed, and made way more complicated than it needs to be.
Well first, I'm not sold completely yet. I'm actually leaning more toward 5/3/1 for powerlifting
, regardless of when the complete e-book comes out, especially since I recently decided to go for a PL meet at the end of this year.
But I do like the auto-regulation built in to TJM, and especially the conditioning/speed work programming. I understand Wendler's "just fucking sprint" mentality, but having actual programming drew me to Smith's program. Plus all the volume seemed like a nice change. The conditioning work can be done in Wendler's program too, of course, but working with a full lifting and conditioning template Smith had laid out was alluring, I guess.
I'm still at least 3 months out from intermediate programming so I have time, but 5/3/1 for PL is as much on my radar as TJM.
