“5/3/1 Forever” is a book written by Jim Wendler, a powerlifter and strength coach. The book is a continuation of Wendler’s original “5/3/1” program, which is a strength training program that focuses on building strength through the use of the five main lifts: squat, bench press, deadlift, overhead press, and power clean.
The “Forever” version of the program expands upon the original program and provides a long-term approach to strength training, with the goal of helping people to continue making progress in their strength training efforts over the course of their lifetimes. The book includes guidelines for adjusting the program as you age and progress, as well as tips for avoiding plateaus and maintaining motivation.
Overall, the book has received positive reviews from readers and strength trainers, with many praising its practical and easy-to-follow approach to strength training. Some reviewers have also noted that the book includes a wealth of useful information beyond just the program itself, including tips on nutrition, recovery, and overall health and wellness.
If you are interested in strength training and are looking for a long-term program that can help you make consistent progress over time, “5/3/1 Forever” may be a good resource for you. This book does require a basic working knowledge of 5/3/1 principles, so the first two books are also recommended reading.
