Planinng on starting with this template this week. Just a little confused - On Jim’s website it says this
_Squat – 5/3/1 sets/reps, 5x5 @ First Set Last ( or FSL) _
Bench - 5/3/1 sets/reps, 5x5 @FSL
_Deadlift – 5/3/1 sets/reps, 5x5 @ FSL _
_Press – 5/3/1 sets/reps, 5x5 @ FSL _
_Bench – 5/3/1 sets/reps, 5x5 @ FSL _
Squat – 5/3/1 sets/reps, 5x5 @ FSL
I use the Black Iron Beast calculator to work out my percentages etc, and it gives the benches on the Monday and Squats on the Friday as 3 sets of 5 at 55%, 65% and 75%, rather than the 5/3/1 sets. I’ve also seen this version referenced on forums.
So my question is (and I expect I know what the answer would be) which is right.
And if its the 5/3/1 sets twice a week for squats and bench, is it 3x5 twice rather than once in a week, and then move onto the 3x3 twice in the second week? So you’d be doing the same sets and reps with the same weight twice in the week?
