I made it up combining principles of starting strength, reverse pyramid, and just random knowledge.
I've never actually looked into 5/3/1 but I did and it's funny how similar the thinking is with the compound lifts and minimalistic approach. I don't think I would go for a straight powerlifting setup yet, I like having the initial heavy set then going up in reps/down in weight so I get to a per exercise rep number of around 25-30, which works great for me (and from everything I've researched this is a pretty good number for many others as well)
My routine in case you didn't scroll back that far
Squats 5,6,7,8 reps
Rom. Deadlifts 10,10,10
Calf Raises 15,15,15
Bench Press 5,6,7,8
Incline db 8,8,6
Push-ups as finisher
OHP 5,6,7 (this is enough to fatigue me)
Pendlay Rows 8,8,6
