My thought is, I really don’t know which exercise choices will most help my performance on the big lifts. I know we can make general assumptions that chins will be better than curls, for example. But will incline DB presses help my bench better than close-grip benching will? How about good mornings vs RDLs for upping my squat?
So I’m thinking about trying a full 3-cycle, 12-week program where I use the same 3 movements for push, pull & single-leg/core across all training days. I’d still be open to varying intensity each day based on how I’m feeling, so deadlift day might require dialing it back a little compared to press day for example.
Then I check my progress at the end, and try the next 12-week cycle with a different 3 assistance choices.
Anybody tried this? And do you see any harm in the lacking variety?
