Wendler 531 | How to in under 5 mins!

Updated: Oct 19, 2020

In this video, we review how to perform the main 4 lifts of Wendler 531, along with the proper reps and weight percentages as you perform Wendler 531 from week to week! I also show you how to create your very own Wendler 531 calculator in excel in order to simplify the whole process! By the end of this video you should be able to setup and run your very own cycle of Wendler 531. This is truly one of my favourite programs, and I have enjoyed reading his books. Anyone who is passionate about strength gain should check into it!

I highly recommend picking up one of Jim Wendler's books, whether that be hard cover, or on amazon kindle. They range for around 10 dollars on kindle, and they are an easy read packed with tons of good info! The books also provide you with accessory lift templates you can use to supplement your main training.

For those who are interested in running this program should do so at their own risk. It is always recommended that a medical doctor be consulted prior to starting any new exercise regimen.

I am not affiliated with Jim Wendler, any of his products, nor has anyone approached me to review their product. The views and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
