5s Pro FSL for Both Main Lifts w/ Full Body?


#1

Alright lads. Only a quick Question. Is it still acceptable to do 5sPro, 5x5 FSL for both main lifts on full body routines? As below for instance? I remember a while ago it was ok but jims work has evolved somewhat over time and in 531 forever i dont think i saw a template with 2 x main lifts and fsl on a single day.

mon

Squat 5sPro 5x5 Fsl
Bench 5sPro 5x5 Fsl
push
pull
core

wed

Dead 5sPro 5x5 Fsl
Press 5sPro 5x5 Fsl
push
pull
core

Yes. You are basically doing the beginner program.

5’s Pro + FSL seems to be very popular for good reason!

Trust me, it is still ok.

I knew i seen it somewhere, thanks pal.

Any of you experienced lads mind recommending me some Assistance with the most bang for the buck for each day? Cheers lads.

Seems like slight overkill, either of these would be preferable…
