DaSlaya's 5/3/1 Pervertor

DaSlaya's 5/3/1 Pervertor


With a name like that, how could I not run this program. Fresh after finishing GZCL UHF 9 week and testing my maxes, I started this program last week. I am a huge fan of 5/3/1 and GZCL workouts. I will probably just keep this updated weekly, but feel free to hit me up with any comments/questions etc.

Of note, I am also throwing in a 5th day here so I can hit bench twice a week. I bought a sling shot a couple months ago and started using it during GZCL UHF and loved it. So I am incorporating Mark Bell’s program that comes with the Sling Shot.

Here is the protocol for the first Leader Template:

  • Use 5s Progression each week using the 3/5/1 order for working sets
  • Weeks 1 and 2 will do First Set Last for 10 sets of 5 reps
  • Week 3 will do Second Set Last for 5 sets of 5 reps
  • Accessory work is 25-50 reps each exercise
  • Use 85% Training Max

Starting Maxes (Current Max / 85%)
Squat: 300 / 255
Bench: 285 / 242
Deadlift: 405 / 344
OHP: 155 / 131

Each Leader is 3 weeks long, I will run Leader (weeks 1-3), up the TM max by 5lbs for upper body and 10lbs for lower body, run another Leader (weeks 4-6), up the TM again, 7th Week Deload (week 7), Anchor (Weeks 8-10), up the TM weight, and end with a 7th week Deload PR test (week 11).

Not real sure the protocol on tihs page of how people post their training logs, so please let me know if you guys want more or less info. I enjoy keeping a log because this keeps me accountable.


Adding in the 5th day to this program seemed to work fine, as I was not overly sore or tired for the normal workout. Got 2 days done this week and in about an hour going to hit Day 3.

So far this week has been significantly easier than last week, but that is the design since this is doing the 3/5/1 protocol. Off to get more!!:


Ok I did not plan on posting this every day, but I wanted to let everyone know of the bonehead move I did this morning. I have been using supplements for many years, but every once in a while I think we all do stupid shit. I was excited to try out 3mb3r PWO by Inspired. I looked at one scoop vs two this morning and thought well, 2 scoops should be fine, even if it is 400mg Caffiene Anyhydrous. Dumb dumb dumb. I felt ill throughout my workout and just ran out of energy very quickly. I definitely should have just stuck with one scoop. Either way got through the workout, but I definitely made it harder than I needed too.

Day 3
Deadlift: 5x225, 5x260, 5x295; 10 sets x 5 reps @ 225
Pull-Ups: BWx6,6,6,4,3
Low Back Raise: BWx10, 25x8, 35x8, 45x7, 45x5
DB Rows: 55x10, 60x10, 65x6, 70x5, 75x5
Curls (21’s): 60x21, 60x21

A few things to note:

  • In January at some point I am going to take a stim break (at least cut back) since I have been running PWOs for a while now, so ordered me som Celluvol to check that out.
  • I have been taking Delta-XT by MAN for my sleep aid and it is working great. Does not knock you out, but makes me tired and relaxes me to go to sleep. The best part is I wake up in a good mood and ready to go, so I tihnk the test boosting properties are helping. I tested low for Test a couple months ago (300 ng/dl) and I suffer from Sleep Apnea, so this is a win win for me!!

Wrapped up Week 2 today.

Day 4
OHP: 5x85, 5x100, 5x100; 10 sets x reps @ 85
Lateral Raise: 15x10, 17.5x10, 20x8, 22.5x5, 22.5x5
DB Shrugs: 75x10, 80x10, 85x8, 90x5, 90x5
Knee Raises: 10,10,10,10,10
Flutter Kicks (4 count): 10,10,10,10,10

Day 5
Bench (Raw): 5 sets x 5 reps @ 215
Bench (Sling Shot): 4 sets x 3 reps @ 230
SS1: Incline DB Press/ BB Row: 4 x 10 @ 47.5 / 4 x 10 @ 100
SS2: DB Tri Ext / Lat Pulldown: 4 x 10 @ 20 / 4 x 10 @ 110

Supplement update
Finished up Delta XT sleep aid tonight (on my last dose), this stuff worked pretty well at relaxing me to go to sleep. I found that when I wake up after taking it that I am ready to go which is an awesome feeling at 4am. Sad to see it go. I also saw some minor results of vascularity thanks to the Epi in it. I recommend this for a sleep aid for sure.

I’ll pots this in my CRV journal, but taking CRV alone post workout did not do much in the recovery department. I was sore as hell all week, so it is not enough alone for recovery for me.

I tried a sample I had of .50 cal PWO (fireball flavor) and it did not do much for me. The dang fireball taste just resonated in my mouth the whole workout and after and I hated it. So not a great sample!


Wrapped up Week 4 the other day. Week 4-6 are the second iteration of the Leader for 5/3/1 Pervertor. I raised my TM for lower body lifts 10 pounds and upper body by 5 pounds. I am starting Week 5 after this post, which kills my OCD since my weeks are running from Thurs - Tues currently!

I decided on Shoulders day (Day 4) I am going to try out a sample packet PWO. This week was Razor 8 by AllMax, which I really enjoyed. I had the Blue Rocket flavor whcih was Blue Razz but better. This is a PWO I will have to look into in the future. So far samples I have enjoyed are Devastator (Killer Labz), Lit (GNC), and Razor 8 (AllMax).

In a no shame attempt to get people to post in my log here, what are the most recent supplements that you have enjoyed that stick out to you as a purchase again!! For me is has been:

Delta XT - MAN
SIze - Ghost (ran this twice, a fun treat every now and again)

Obviously I have a thing and respond well to Epicatechin! I have K1ngsBlood but will run that later on as I started to run DAA by RCSS (had 2 bottles I got free over past orders) for the last week. I know DAA is a hit or miss, but I have never ran it so may as well give it a whirl. One week in nothing has changed, but we shal see in next week or so. I do have Low T, so any temporary boost I can feel!


Wrapped up Week 5 yesterday. I have been sick last couple of days, so decided to move my Day 5 routine to next week. It is a bench max test day, then I move to 4 days a week after, but I want to make sure I am 100% before trying it. This is the last week of 10 x 5 sets, so that is awesome!!

Day 1
Squats: 5 x 170,200, 225; 10x5 @ 170
Leg Press / Calf Raise / Split Squats: 25-50 reps each

Day 2
Bench: 5x 160, 185, 210; 10x5 @ 160
Incline / DB Fly / Abs: 25-50 reps each

Day 3
Deadlift: 5 x 230, 265, 300; [email protected] 230
Pull-ups / Low Back Raise / Rows: 25-50 reps each
Bicep Curls: 2 sets of 21s

Day 4
OHP: 5 x 90, 105, 115; 10 x 5 @ 90
Lateral Raise / Shrugs / Abs: 25-50 reps each

This was the last light week of the routine as well. Starting Week 6 on Thursday, or whenever I knock this bug outta my system.

My PWO Sample of the week was DVST8 by Inspired. I did not really care for it.
