5/3/1 is one of the best programmes out there IMHO. Once you understand the basics of it, it's also surprisingly simple.

Everyone says that :D

Was thinking of doing it with the bodyweight assists.

Well today was interesting, switched up to bodyweight exercises and the 5/3/1 program.

Well the crunches made my stomach area hurt, no really I could feel twitching there towards the end of the 4th set.

The swissball squats seemed fine until I left the gym, half way down the road my inner thighs just went "Muhaha, you thought you were getting away with that?"

Well just started the new program and I can safely say that my body hates me :)

Can't really complete a lot of the bodyweight exercises, maybe get to about 90% or 80% of what I need but that just shows I need to work harder.

Well it's Friday and I'm exhausted. I got to the pullups and my arms decided to go on holiday without prior notice :D

However, I'm going through the assistance exercises to see which I prefer, next week is the Triumvirate setup. We'll see what that's like!

Well so far everything is going well. I've been messing around with assistance work to see what I would prefer to do.

Currently my lifts are getting bigger and on the assistance work I do as heavy as I possibly can and then usual thing, if I can complete the sets, up the weights.

Only thing that's annoying is that I don't seem to be gaining, well, size. My weight has stayed between 165-167 and no noticeable improvement in muscle size but we'll see, still early days.

Also, why bicep curls you may ask? Well, vanity >.>

Check out my journal mate ~ the last month or so I feel like I have made some massive gains in muscle but the scales haven't moved AT ALL. I just put up a few recent photos on there, big improvements in my arms and delts but I still weigh a measly 139lb !!! :?

Don't sweat it, just keep lifting, eating and give yourself enough time to recover.

I'm fine, I'm just fiddling with stuff right now. A few things IRL have kept me at my computer but haven't really been able to do "anything".

Well as far as things go I've been experimenting with a lot of the assistance work on the 5/3/1 program. Right now I'm trying the bodybuilding work as published here http://www.jimwendler.com/2011/09/531-and-bodybuilding/

I think the main lifts are getting better, slow progress as far as building size goes and I'm still having a bit of trouble shifting that last little bit of fat on my stomach. Will happen eventually though.

Well so far things are going 50/50.

I'm getting at lot stronger, hell now I can do a 90kg deadlift which is a 50kg improvement from when I started a year ago.

However, the down side is that I'm not getting much bigger. Everything is getting harder but not bigger and since one of my goals is to change my body shape that's a downer.

But maybe I just need to change stuff up. Maybe I'm doing to little or too much. We shall see.

I like how your thighs laugh at you that's funny stuff. I have definitely been talked to my body after workouts before that's for sure.
Sounds like you are really putting in some work though, well done.

Thanks. My body hates me, I can put it through the worst punishment but it would be just one small thing that makes me limp for a week.

Also, my body is odd in itself, it gets stronger but not bigger, no matter how much cardio I do or alter my diet I still get a bit of fat around the stomach.

However, seeing decent improvements all around.
