Thank you for taking the time to spell all of this out. I like your advice of ranking my goals. I have been working on what my goals are since posting this thread but have not racked and stacked them just yet.
I trully enjoy 5/3/1 however I also like good conditioning afterwards. Back when I did 5/3/1 I did my own "CrossFit" following Wendler's advice on his accesory lifts from the book. I often found myself training only those exercises I was comfortable with and was not pushing myself since I made the program. The math of 5/3/1 was easy once I plugged it all into Excel.
May I ask what method you follow now?
