5'9 125ish? What are your goals like that causes you to be 125? My wife weighs that and is 5'3" (and squats about 180 and deadlifts 245).

At 125 you basically need to triple your food intake and start squatting and pressing every other day for a few months. Basically Starting Strength + triple your food + drinking a gallon of whole milk every day. Then when you come back 50lbs heavier you can start doing wods rx'd and worrying about intermediate strength programs like 5/3/1 is considered to be.
