Training Three Days a Week

Training Three Days a Week

  • Do you want to get stronger in less time?
  • Are you sick of training programs that leave you weak and overtrained?
The first book by Jim Wendler challenges the thought that more is better. In this book, Jim gives you countless options for training for strength in less time that you are doing right now. This book is perfect for any powerlifter, strength athlete or any one looking to add some strength, mass and PR’s.

Most people believe that more time in the weight room is equal to better gains in the weight room. Nothing could be further from the truth. Quality work is the key to strength training as well as adequate recovery. Training three days a week allows any lifter to make great gains (and sometimes better than they are now) as well as allowing for more time away from the gym.

This book contains 10 different templates and including the 5/3/1 Method that he has used for the past couple of years with great success for his own raw training. Also included are 6 complete workouts:

  • 3 – 4 week workouts
  • 1 – 7 week workout
  • 1- 12 week workout (meet preparation and complete circa max phase)
  • 1 – 10 week workout
Jim Wendler talks about his new book here

Book is 66 pages, no fluff, no pictures…all training

Here is what people have said about the book

I just picked up the Three Days E-Book and I must say this is arguably the most useful and practicical training information I have ever read. The options you give with the 5/3/1 method are simple but genius. Your work has certainly re-lit the fire to train hard again and I can't wait to put some of the methods presented into practice.

Pair this with the conditioning manual you have coming out and people have no excuse to get strong, jacked, and well-conditioned.


"Jim Wendler's "Three Days a Week" Training Manual is rock solid training info that should be followed, and more so, can EASILY be followed regardless of being a intermediate or advanced lifter. Beginners should read this and prepare to follow these simple programs. I remember my strongest days were the result of an every other day program. The power behind this manual is that you have countless workouts and training cycles typed out for you, so all you need is the balls to go heavy and get under the bar. If you're busy and tired of trying to train 4 days a week and then add in extra workouts and all that other hoopla craziness that makes your head spin and takes away time from every single day of your life, then stop screwing around and follow these programs that will give you back more free time, and of course, get you jacked up and stronger than ever before."

"There's a few things I really dislike and those things are being too busy and not getting stronger / bigger. I'm gonna follow these programs because I want more free time in my life, they fit the bill with what I need and I know they work because they have been proven in the trenches time and time again by someone who walks the walk. Enough more talking, it's time for me to take action!"

I used Jim's 3-day powerlifting template with tremendous success. I'm able to get all of the necessary work done in the gym and allow my body more time for rest and recovery. The extra day of recovery keeps my mind fresh and excited about getting into the gym to train. When I'm at the gym, I'm able to be very focused, rested, and get all the work done that I need.

On top of that, I have more time in my personal life to devote to work or play. The 3-day split that Jim and I have spoken about has been a great tool in my training arsenal.

The 3 Day a Week Manual is one of the best books recently written. It has a ton of clear cut, useful information that can be applied immediately. It is grass roots training at it's finest. Reminds me of the days when training wasn't so complicated. You have taken a topic of program design and simplified it so that results are the end result. I recommend any trainer, coach, or strength enthusiast to buy this manual and actually USE it. As a business owner who has limited time to train, the 3 Day Manual is a great tool to get my training in the time I have. We need more books like this in the strength industry.

"Finally, someone who has written a manual that shows people that you don't need to train 5, 6, 7 days/week to see the results everyone wants. I use a three day/week template with all of the student-athletes that I train. I have found that this not only allows me to be very efficient with the time I have with my athletes but also allows for greater retention and accountability when showing up for training, especially with a busy collegiate life. Physical as well as mental recovery is important when training any individual and a 3 day/week program helps allow for this. Jim has done a great job showing how less is more and that keeping it simple and using your time efficiently will get your farther than you every thought in a shorter amount of time. I recommend this manual to anyone who trains other athletes, individuals, or for themselves. There's always something to learn!!"

I just got the 3 days e-book. I like the way its set up and you explain everything. I have just started the 5/3/1 training and I like the way you do a rep out on the last set. I look forward big gains. You are right about wanting to get to the gym, everything is laid out and all I have to do is jump in and do the work. Sweet, simple and quick! I dig it Jim great job!
