5/3/1 is certainly a program designed for the long term. Also, the gains aren't always noticed at first. You may think you have not gained much one day and then you feel good one day and smash a huge PR. Besides traning maxes don't mean very much. I have never once used my real max as my training max and still have gotten stronger. In fact on the Squat I have never even got within 80 lbs of my real max. If you want a program where you can see your strength gains and have variety you might want to look into a Westside program.
Discipline makes you mentally and physically tough!
Currently making everything stronger!!
Once I stick to the program I am going to get really strong.
