Wendler wrote a new article about The “Boring But Big” 3-Month Challenge over at T-Nation and I’ve decided this is exactly what I’m looking to do right now. Have to admit, 5 sets of 10 for pull ups was definitely a challenge. I recommend reading the article for the full details; good stuff.

The muscles haven’t felt this full after a training session in a long time; and that’s a good thing. This is going to be a great challenge.
