Advanced Clusters Compared to 5x5


#1

Amazing stuff thanks Coach. How would you compare this with more traditional 5x5 (using 80-85%). Sometimes in my layer workout the clusters become like 5x5 in effect..

Have you found the extended set at end of cluster to be more effective than separating them into a HDL section (like layers)?

Not looking for black/white answer just understand difference in applications and when works best.

Last q, is recovery with this sort of training more/less than more traditioanl styles vs. crossfit vs. olifting, and can we use it high frequency/long term?

Thinking something like one main lift 6x a week along with an assitance exercise (straight sets, or use same style)?

Can't wait to use, thanks.
