I just read a 5/3/1 article on T Nation by Jim Wendler. I was considering doing this since I have been mixing some powerlifting into my usual routine. Stupid question though, but can one still maintain or achieve aesthetics doing this program? I see some people at my gym into powerlifting but while some are very strong they honestly just don't look that good.

You can't judge whether or not you can achieve your goals by looking at other people who have different goals than you.

The people you see who are into powerlifting and don't look aesthetic to you probably don't care.

I think aesthetics has more to do with diet and training consistency more so than the type of training. Pick a program, stick with it, taylor your diet to your goals, and KILL IT.

Pick pretty much any pro powerlifter and put him on a cut and see what happens. They are made of muscle, most just choose to pursue solely strength over looks. Strength equals muscle mass as much as hypertrophy. It's just that after 1 great hypertrophy workout you already look bigger. It takes more patience to build muscle from strength training because you don't see such prominent results at the end of each workout. Guess that's why I like 5/3/1. I feel like most days I'm breaking PRs or competing against myself to hit PRs. I'm really liking powerlifting more than bodybuilding lately.
