531 is a popular and proven barbell strength training methodology developed by Jim Wendler, an elite powerlifter and long-time strength coach. The routine focuses on building strength in the squat, bench press, deadlift, and overhead press. The routine is called "triumvirate" because you'll simply be doing 3 lifts each day, the main lift plus two accessory exercises. Though strength is the focus of the routine, it's also highly effective for goals like building muscle, getting toned, or losing fat assuming you follow your meal plan.
