Ben Seath's Youtube Channel (5/3/1)

I'm currently following 5/3/1 by Jim Wendler for the second time and seeing good results.  I am following the template for the main lifts, and doing 'Boring But Big' (5 x 10 reps at 50-60%) after the main lift. 

In my search for information on other accessory work to complement 5/3/1, I came across the youtube channel of Ben Seath.

Ben Seath's Youtube Channel

Ben is a raw powerlifter and at around 300lbs has a total of 2041lbs!  He's currently running 5/3/1 in his training and this is what his videos focus on.

See the following video of the lifts making up his 2041lb total:

I've found Ben's channel really useful.  As well as posting his main lifts, he video blogs about his diet, his technique, and also his accessory lifts after his main lift.  His method is to work on what was weak within his top set on the main lifts, so if he found his triceps were the weak link on his overhead press, he would target triceps in his accessory work.

I hope Ben continues to post great videos as he has done - I'll certainly be watching and looking forward to learning more in my quest to get stronger.
