The 2 Suns Linear Progression version of 5/3/1 is great for beginners because it immediately gets them accustomed to higher training frequency, whereas many novice programs only call for 3x weekly training. The novice trainer is unique in that they are able to rapidly recover from training sessions.

Recommended because:

  • 2x weekly benching
  • 2x weekly squatting (counting the front squat variation)
  • 2x weekly deadlifting (counting the alternate stance variation)
  • Plenty of room to add accessories that address weaknesses

My only recommendation would be to add in some upper back work as an accessory, as the primary lifts programmed here don’t hit it especially hard.
