28 Weeks of Training


#1

Hey Jim and Folks,

I intend to start the 28 Weeks of Training from the Beyond 5/3/1 eBook next week. I was skimming through this forum and Jim’s website to find ideas about how to implement assistance work. It seems like bodyweight exercises for volume is often recommended, and I feel like it is the perfect fit to move NOV. I stumbled on the 3 days/week Prep Program:

A Workout
Squat - 5/3/1, 5x5 FSL/Push ups
Bench - 5/3/1, 5x5 FSL/Chin ups
Rows/Dips/Curls

B Workout
Deadlift - 5/3/1, 5x5 FSL/Push ups
Press - 5/3/1, 5x5 FSL/Chin ups
Rows/Dips/Curls

What hooks me on the 28 Weeks of Training, more so than 5x5 FSL, is the multiple opportunities to set PRs every workouts.

Would it be appropriate to use the sample template above with the 28 Weeks of Training to move NOV?
