Big fan and a long time 5/3/1’er with great results. Thank you for the program. Awhile back I found a variation on your website that I’ve been itching to try. You may recall it’s an FSL variation that goes heavy, medium, heavy, light and the first week looks like this:
- 75×5, 85×5, 95×5, 100×1-3 (not a PR), 75 for 5 sets of 5
I’m doing this this month with squat only. I’d had it in mind to do this variation for each lift, one at a time, over the course of a year. Is three cycles per lift (back to back to back), again individually while following a more standardized 5/3/1 for the other three lifts, too much?
If it helps to formulate an answer, I Train a four-day split and keep my assistance work efficient, but minimal.
