    What are peoples thoughts on % based strength training like Wendlers 5/3/1 where rep range is kept in the 3-5 range focusing on the big 4 lifts rather than the alternating system used in MHPT.

    %’s prescriptions are only as good as you knowledge of TRUE 1RM’s – I feel it’s best to estimate and with tools outside of barbell, DB , KB it gets sketchy

    5/3/1 is a strength program – great for powerlifting or a strength phase but not enough for performance training or overall fitness.
