Thanks both you guys, I should really break down and buy Beyond, I bought original when it first came out, and have been usiing it with my kids for years, just cheap, I guess, and I figured from what I was hereing most of the changes were in line with the changes most of us were already doing, that had been playing with 531 for the last 5yrs, but it's only 10 bucks, so i really should have a look at it. LOL CHEAP !
As far as the layering, I just started looking at it this week, because LoRez wanted my help with his training, and he's doing layering. It apears to be a type of wave training, and I've had good luck with this in the past, years ago I did Dan john's 5-3-2 wave, and thats what finaly got me a double body weight bench, back in 09 I believe, wasn't training legs at that point though.
It does look like a really solid program, but honestly, as much as I'm sure it's a great program I just find CT's stuff to complicated for me, thats just me. I've been training for years, and I'm kind of a pick it up, and put it back down kind of guy. I've never been able to wrap my head around West side for the same reason, some guys thrive on this type of training, but for me when it becomes to complicated I loose interest.
I spent yesterday, pretty much all day reading Mike Tuchscherer's stuff, his thought process on strength training is right in line with my own, though it's a little complicated as well, he has scales to judge exersution, and fatigue, and I'll have to figure this out a little bit, but I think his autoregulation will work real well with my 531 template, on upper body, and deadlift.
The squat I'm going to keep rotating the Smolov Jr, squatting every workout day for 3 weeks, and then taking a week off, along side my 531. haha it sounds funny, after I said I didn't like complicated routines. I'm using 3 different programs stuffed togeather (smolov-531-autoregulation) but it all makes sense to me. i all ready wrote all this down in my log. Thanks for all the input, I'll give it a 3 week spin (cycle) and post back here, what i think.
The rest will be in my log. Latter
