Hi everyone sorry for the silly question but I'm looking into using 5s pro for my pain supplemental lifts after the core lift . My question is , say I'm using SL deads after my deadlift as main assistance . How do you guys get the starting weight for the 5s pro ? Do I go in and do a rep max then use the 1rm formula to get my estimated max then program from there ? Apologies if this has been discussed . Thank you all
Yes. You have to get a very estimated max. If you are strong enough to do SLDL for 5's PRO, you should already know how to manipulate the TM based on experience. If not, I would not recommend it. I would recommend 3x10 with around 30% of your DL. Way too many people screw up this movement.
Thanks very much for the reply and advice Jim . I have your beyond book , best training resource imo. May I ask what lifts you would consider good to use for 5s pro as supplemental movement ? Thank you
SS Bar Squat, incline press, box squat, front squat, deficit pulls - just the normal shit.
If you want to do SLDL, I was looking through some old notes I had. Use your bench numbers. Do 10/5/10+ for each week. Very easy to do.
Thank you for the info Jim .
