After too much overthinking, I’ve been through nearly 2 cycles of Original 5/3/1 with an A/B format. I’ve been doing this 3 times a week. Running 5k at least once and doing Hill Sprints at least once.
Chins, Pushups and Decline Sit ups
Chins, Pushups and Back Raises
I’m thinking of using a 3 or 4 day template next for a leader and wanted to still include Chins and pushups, basically because I started off poorly and I’m getting better at them.
Forever prescribes a number of push, pull, core for each workout. Does anyone for instance do something like Chins, Push Ups and Back Raises as assistance for all 4 workouts in a week? If the volume of assistance is reduced for the leader, surely this would keep me trained in these movements.
On another note, I’m looking to run a strength template that’s ok for size but not the main focus. Anyone have any good experiences?
Edit: Bench, Deads and Press are all improving. I’m doing Front Squat because my gym doesn’t have a squat rack and this is progressing much slower.
