    This was posted by Future not too long ago. It should address your first two questions.

    You can pick specific accessory work to fit your needs. I have been running the 5/3/1 boring but big template for the past 3 months with a pyramid down scheme (see template). Its a very solid program.

    BTW, I am half Greek. Don't make it sound like a bad thing, LOL

      I have currently completed the first 10's wave of the Juggernaut Method, so far so good. I like it better than i did like classic 5/3/1 because TJM gives more variety. Check it out when you get a chance!

        The answer to Number 1 is , 40,50 60.

        The weeks are set up different on 5/3/1 powerlifting.

        You go 3x3 then singles, 3x5 only do five reps, then 5/3/1 then singles, then deload.

        I haven't read the powerlifting book yet, so I cant give you a concrete answer. But I think it would be 3-5 singles up to your 90% max.
