I’ve been working on 531 for c.3 months now with great results. But, despite having read the original 531 and Beyond 531, I note that there are two things that are not mentioned in either but which are commonplace here; I wonder if someone could confirm the following for me:
In the above books you are urged to go back a few cycles if you stall on a specific exercise, but it seems from reading this forum that 5 forward/3 back is the norm, regardless of stalling or not. Is this the case?
I’ve been using the full body, 3 day a week template and love it. But I see that changing templates is again commonplace on this forum. Usually 2 cycles each of Heavy, Medium, Light templates. Again, is this what most folk are doing? Changing things up to cover all aspects of training and to get a change of pace or volume/intensity?
I’m sure these questions have been asked before but I thought I’d ask. Things have been going so well I’m loth to change.
