Hello everyone and hello Jim from France.
First of all, thanks a lot for your 5/3/1 program and its variations. I have been going to the gym for about 12 years now and I feel that I have finally found my path with strength training which your program got me into.
Still being a skinny dude, I am following the BBB variation II and so far it is making wonder. However, I am starting to think about slight tweaking of the bench and press days after some more cycles. So far, those two days looks like that:
Bench BBB in superset with pull-ups
Inverted row with rings
Press BBB in superset with chin-ups
Behind the neck pull-ups in superset with dips with rings
For now, I have goals on how much I want to be able to push at my body weight, e.g. 80 kg at the press for my 70 kg of bodyweight (which is slowly increasing). However, before setting up the next goal, I would like to spend a few cycles adding pull-ups and chin-ups as a 5/3/1 with a BBB routine. Then, the two days would look like that:
in superset with pull-ups 5/3/1
Bench BBB in superset with pull-ups BBB
in superset with Chin-ups 5/3/1
Press BBB in superset with chin-ups BBB
The goal there would be to increase my strength in those pulling movements even if it costs me a slower progression in those two barbell movements.
Any comments are more than welcome.
