I’ve been training consistently for 1 year using the original 5/3/1 BBB. I’ve got the new Forever book and have decided to have a go at some of the other program’s.
I’m looking at running Boring But Strong for 2 Leader cycles but I’m unsure what anchor cycle to run. I was thinking either FSL (PG58), 5X5/3/1 (PG 93/93).
Also, quick question on Assistance work,
On the original 5/3/1 BBB I did 5X10 Dumbell rows on bench day only as assistance work. This was obviously on top of the 5/3/1 sets and the BBB sets 5X10. In other words for assistance work I did 50 reps.
Now looking at the new assistance work rules I have to do 50 reps of pull, 50 reps of push and 50 reps core on top of 3X5 sets and 10 X 5 sets. So, I’m now 150 reps for assistance work.
I tend to rest 1.5 minutes between warm up sets, 3 minutes between 5/3/1 sets and 2 minutes between every other set. The original 5/3/1 took me 1 hr to do, this is going to take me 2-3 hours. Am I reading this right ?
