5/3/1 6 Days a Week


#1

Hey Jim.

I really like to hear your oppinion on this, so i hope you will answer me. I really LOVE to workout, as well as i love the 5/3/1 template. However, i dont think that it is enough for me to workout 4 days a week. Training makes me happy, and thefore i want to train almost everyday. I would like to hear your oppinon on how i can incorporate this into my 5/3/1 routine, without destroying my strength progress. I have thought of something about making it a 3-day split, with a legs+lower back day, a upper back+biceps day and a chest+shoulder day. Of courde it will be some short workouts, but it is fine with me. I just need to feel my muscles work "every" day. How would you plan this?

Greetings Kasper
