5/3/1 Program Split Up 6 Days per Week


#1

I am currently on week 7 of this amazing program. My question is can I split the training up to 6 days per week... For instance M-Squat T-bench W-dead T-press F-squat S-bench?


#2

I’ve written numerous “high frequency programs” for 531. You must be smart about the volume and don’t turn into Assistance Exercise Champion. Remember training is easy when recovery is addressed.


#3

My plan for assistance work on squat days was going to be a deadlift variation for sets of 5-7 reps using fatigue as my guide. On Deadlift days I wanted to do GHR or reverse hypers as my assistance work. Upper body days I was going to keep the same assistance work you already prescribed but with some dips or dumbbell presses added.
