I’ve purchased and read 5/3/1 2nd edition and 5/3/1 beyond and have re-read them for about a week while deciding what program to move to. Due to work/gym/life I am only able to go to the gym on 3 consecutive days (fri/sat/sun) but still enjoy doing all the main lifts each week. I decided to do a 6 week training cycle to get used to following the program. In that regard, it would be great if you could look over my plan and see if anything looks ridiculous. I have a few months this year and last doing the lifts and am comfortable with them, but don’t have anything above beginner numbers.
Bench 531, fsl 3x5
Squat fsl 3x5 (of that week’s squat %s)
Push: close grip bench
Pull: DB row
Leg/abs: side raises
OHP 531, fsl 3x5
Deadlift 531, fsl 3x5
Pull: chins/pull-ups (negatives at the moment)
Legs/abs: weighted lunges
Squat 531, fsl 3x5
Bench fsl 3x5 (that weeks %)
Push: DB bench
Pull: Lat pull down
Leg/abs: straight leg deadlifts
I’m not going to do the double 531 sets for squats/bench as the days are consecutive. This example follows the %S used in the book, instead of the article here which suggests doing double 531 each day.
If I’ve messed up and have misunderstood please tell me where I can improve.
