I am thinking about switching to the 5/3/1 progression for deadlifts since I am at the point where recovering from weekly 5 rep max attempts is making it hard for me to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu effectively. I figured since 5/3/1 uses lower percentages of effort and has a deload week it may be a good option for improving recovery. Does anyone have thoughts on this?
Right now I do a lot of warmup deadlift sets and then 1x5 on deadlift days, usually followed by 3x5 of military press, and then one horizontal rowing movement and either chins or dips. I increase my weight in deadlift either 5 or 10lbs each week depending on how fresh I feel, and currently do 295x5 at a bodyweight of 177. I know going to 5/3/1 will slow my progress, but right now my body is just wrecked for at least 3 days from such heavy pulls every week.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated. Thanks!
