The 5/3/1 training program was written by power lifter Jim Wendler (www.jimwendler.com).  The no BS summary is that it is a very effective training tool!  I have found that with 2-3 cycles I have been able add 20kg to a 1RM bench press in a player rehabilitating from a lower leg injury who at the time was running approx 25km per week. 

Not bad gains!
