So how many of you are following the OMOB plan? Wendler 5/3/1? Any others? Just curious.

Have run OMOB with success for many cycles. Had a play around with a hybrid of my own for a while before jumping on the Garage Gym Athlete programme. It's been awesome for me because when left to my own devices I favour strength too much and neglect conditioning. GGA is good for balance for me.
Does it hurt? Good. Get it done.

I'm following the one year plan myself. Just getting ready to start with version 2. Looking forward to adding different methods to the program. Should be interesting. Good to hear from others who have had several cycles.

I've run OMOB with great success.
Dipped my toes in Tactical Barbell for a minute but I've been Currently nestled into Wendler's 5/3/1 for awhile now.

Always been a big fan of Wendler's plans. I also had good results running Layne Nortons PH3 plan. Lots of volume but good results.

I've watched a few of Layne's technique vids. I'll look for his program tommorrow.

I like it so far. I just completed my second 6 week cycle and plan to do one more.

 

Here is the link to the ebook if you're interested https://www.amazon.c...series_rw_dp_sw.

 

The Operator template that I use is different than other programs I have done as it has you doing the lifts 2-3 times per week. This has been hugely beneficial to me, especially on the bench.

 

I lift 3 days/week:

Day 1 is Squat/ Bench/ Pull-ups

Day 2 is Squat/ Bench/ Pull-ups

Day 3 is Deadlift/ Bench/ Pull-ups 

 

You follow a 6 week cycle:

Week 1 is 3-5x5 @ 70% 1RM

Week 2 is 3-5x5 @ 80%

Week 3 is 3-4x3 @ 90%

Week 4 is 3-5x5 @ 75%

Week 5 is 3-5x3 @ 85%

Week 6 is 3-4x1-2 @ 95%

Virtus...I bought the book because it caught my interest. Where did you find the breakdown of the percentages to be using?

Thanks

The rep scheme and weight percentages are all listed in Sections 11-14 where it describes their 3 templates: Operator, Zulu, and Fighter.

 

I use a slightly modified Operator template.

Late to the party - Like many others here I have run OMOB and Wendler.  Currently working beyond 5/3/1 - 6 wk cycles 3/5/1 format using JKR's as I feel it and down sets.  Conditioning is sporadic but usually 3 days/wk.

I think it's important to note that consistency in doing the work is a hell of a lot more important than the specific program or template you are using. Any of the options listed here followed on a consistent basis will yield positive results.

Virtus..I agree 100% with you. I try to follow whatever plan consistently. I was curious to see what other plans people were following. I'm always considering other plans. I think that's a major thing that keeps me going and has for all these years. I'm on a deload/rest week which is good since I'm dealing with a minor injury.

Well, I'm out of likes but I couldn't agree more. It's really a matter of defining one goal & going for it. In retrospect, I think every plan deserves at least a 6 weeks to 2 month tour of duty unless you get in and realize immediately that it's not for you.
I'm actually glad that we have a diversity of programs going on in the community so that I can "watch" & keep up
