5/3/1: Triumverate vs. Boring But Big


I am trying to decide between these two routines but I can't come to any conclusions. The triumverate looks a little more fun than the boring but big, but will the BBB give me better gains?




That is all you need. Do the triumverate.


I did BBB for the SQ and DL because BBB SQ helps me get out of the hole and BBB DL w/o a belt and double overhand grip helps improve my grip and lower back strength. I wrote this already on another thread. I've never tried the triumverate. I don't have a leg press or leg curl machine in my apartment.

The only way to find out is experimentation.


Try both.

Failing that, flip a coin.
