Ok, so I have come to a point where I think it would be beneficial for me to start considering something different than my current 5’s based LP. I just reset my squat about a month ago (@270) and am at a point now where I am sitting at 285 (Wednesday session went 5,5,4 and Friday repeated weight I missed a rep on set 1). This typically indicates a time for a backoff period but I think some technique issues are present as well. Right not I am pondering two or three things:
Drop from Squatting 3 times a week to a Squat-Front Squat-Squat week- Have done this once before and had a fair amount of success.
Drop the weight way back and try a 20 rep squat program (The volume practice really wouldn’t hurt and who doesn’t like a little extra hypertrophy for the summer)
Stats: 5’11" 205 lbs
Recent Maxes Squat-335 Bench-275 Dead-405
For the 20 rep Squats I was thinking:
Alternate A and B in ABA BAB format:
BB Row- 3x10
Press- 3x12 (haven’t decided it Smith, DB, or BB; Front or BTN)
Rom Dead- 1x15
Leg Curls- 3x15
Maybe throw in some curls if I feel like it on Friday but nothing strenuous.
I would run that for 9 weeks (give or take) to try to 20 rep 285 before either going back to the LP or moving into the TM
