This is one of the few great things to come out of the internet, especially Reddit which is full of people who think they know everything about everything! Under the name of nSuns 531 on Reddit this training program appeared.
It has quickly risen in the ranks of powerlifting programs and has been downloaded and used by many lifters. Very little is known about this mysterious nSuns character, he's the dark night of powerlifting.
However, nSuns has posted a number of strength and powerlifting programs on Reddit over the past few years and they all seem to be very popular and in high demand. There's even a sub-forum on Reddit dedicated to nSuns 5/3/1.
nSuns 5/3/1 is a hybrid amalgamation of both Jim Wendlers 5/3/1 and Sheiko Programs. nSuns took the 5/3/1 concept from Wendler along with the Training Max and training frequency then merged it with Sheiko's high volume training.
Although one might think because the two styles of training (Wendler vs Sheiko) are so vastly different merging them together would be a disaster.... HOWEVER, it actually works! Yes, the seemingly opposing concepts complement one another.
