So currently I’m running a full body 5/3/1 3x/week split similar to Beyond 5/3/1 (the program on the site, not the book) where I do Squat/Press one day, and Deadlift/Bench the next. One lift is 5/3/1 and the other is BBB. Like Jim has mentioned in the past, I do variations of the main lift for the BBB, just to get some variety in my work and to emphasize certain things. Front Squats instead of Squats to hit quads, Sumo DL instead of conventional because I really feel these in the glutes, and slight incline BB Bench instead of Flat Bench to feel it in my pecs.
I’m struggling to come up with a variation of the Overhead press that I can do on the BBB day. I tried out doing the traditional “military press” where I use a slightly wider grip and keep my heels together, but I was wondering if there might be a better alternative. I’m trying to stay away from dumbbells, mostly because I like barbells more, but if there’s no other way around it I’ll switch. On the 5/3/1 FAQ Jim recommended fat bar MP, but I don’t have access to one. Any ideas?
EDIT: Also, I already do dips as an assistance movement for triceps, hopefully there’s something else I can do.
