I trained like this for a while, and really liked it. Here’s what I did:
2 days of 531, squat/bench and DL/OHP. Either 5x531 (Wendler classic) or a Limited time template.
The third day I really liked what I list below. I stole this from Dan John, and is a great addition to a strength-based or performance-based program.
- Rung and ladder (5 rounds of the following) (below is one round. I use a 65 lb DB, but a KB would also work. The weight should be challenging, but nothing too heavy. Also, I try to keep moving during each round with minimal rest, then rest 1-2 minutes between rounds):
Left arm clean and press, Right arm clean and press. 1 pull up
2 left arm clean and presses, 2 right arm clean and presses, 2 pull ups.
3 left arm clean and presses, 3 right arm clean and presses, 3 pull ups.
Then 3 rounds of: (try to use the same weight as above):
1x8 DB BP left arm; 1x8 DB bench press right; 8 ab wheel roll outs.
100 KB swings (nothing heavy, usually 4x25), 100 face pulls (nothing heavy, 5x20)
