thanks for the well wishes guys. @TX_Iron @TrainForPain (new user so I can’t tag all of you)
So I’d like to clarify one thing, training is something I enjoy, especially S/B/D, so you might say I’m more geared towards PL based routines, such as 5/3/1 that was an option that I looked at yesterday doing some research I guess I forgot to make that clear… in addition, I’d prefer to be in the gym at least 4 days a week. So the main thing im looking for in a routine is a focus on S/B/D that hits everything twice a week, which is kind of why I was looking at a 5/3/1 based routine.
To give you more of an idea, when I wake up every morning, the gym is something I look forward to. Squatting, Benching, and Deadlifting, as sad as it sounds (don’t worry I have friends too) are one of my more favorite things to do. I mean ive always been an active kid
HOWEVER, I did read those articles you posted just now. Here are my takeaways
Strength Training: College Edition by Ben Bruno
What I like:
- 4 days a week
- Gives an OPTION for everything to be hit twice a week depending on how you structured it. So he said Push, Pull, Legs, Optional…I guess one could do Push/Legs/Pull/Fullbody and structure rest days around that
Again I don’t want to come off as THAT guy that thinks he knows everything, but I was thinking maybe the template could be more aligned with how I prefer to train…again not doubting the template just putting multiple options out there
typing this response it seems like I have my own answer in that maybe I should just do 531 because its really customizable and seems to fit my goals…
however, I would like to thank @TX_iron for the article he provided because the principles talked about in the article can be utilized
also I read the article @TrainForPain posted, thanks for that as well!
