My squat is piss poor in relation to my other lifts, about even with my bench. I have been focusing on proper depth and form, which was a real ego check from squatting above parallel. It’s going up, which is great, but I am wondering if this template would be helpful in focusing on the squat.
I picked up the 531 GVT template from the BBB section in Beyond, and it caught my eye since I really enjoy volume work. Plus, it’s simple but involved enough (3 movements) that it will hopefully keep me from adding in tons of assistance.
OHP - 5/3/1
DB Bench - 10x10 (not sure if this is supposed to superset with pulls like normal, but if so, I’d do 10x10 chins)
Lat work - 10x10 (likely bent or upright row)
Deadlift - 5/3/1
Squat - 10x10
Abs and/or back extensions
Bench - 5/3/1
DB OHP - 10x10 (again, with chins if needed)
Seated row - 10x10
Front Squat - 10x10
Basically the same as written, but with front squats instead of DL’s for the BBB/GVT on the last day. I don’t want to neglect any of the lifts, but DL is definitely my strongest lift, and I don’t enjoy high volume pulls, so I thought that may be a good way to squeeze in more squat time. Is this a good idea, or am I thinking too hard and should just shut up and do it as written?
Also, would I still superset presses with pullaparts/chins? Or is that too much?
