Jim, firstly thanks for everything you do on here and elsewhere it is much appreciated. I have rest my TM to 85% and intend following the cycle progression outlined in the passing the Lifting Torch article with an additional cycle of the 5-531, so:
Cycles 1&2 5-531
cycle 3 5s pro 5x5 fsl
cycle 4 5s pro 5x5 fsl lower body lifts, 5s pro 50 reps fsl upper body lifts
cycle 5 531 Pr/goal set on last set and first set
My question (for Jim and any one else) is for cycles 1&2 would the following lifting template be ok/suitable? And if not what changes would you make?
• Squat - FSL
• Bench Press - 5 sets of 5 reps at top weight
• Db Rows – 30-50 reps
• Push-ups – 50-100 reps
• Deadlift - 5 sets of 5 reps at top weight
• Press - 5 sets of 5 reps at top weight
• Fat man Rows - 30-50 reps
• Curls – 30 reps
• Squat – 5 sets of 5 reps at top weight
• DB Press – 30-50 reps
• Db Rows - 30-50 reps
• Shrugs – 30-50 reps
Pull-Ups between Main lifts (50 reps)
Band Pullaparts , sit-ups/planks Everyday or Training session supersetted with last exercise.
