Is this any better?
Bench 5 3 1
Front squat 5 3 1
Dips 50 reps…as many sets as needed
Incline dumbell bench 5x5
Romanian deadlift 3x5
Ab wheel 5 sets
Military press 5 3 1
Power clean 5 3 1
Pull ups 50 reps…as many sets as needed
Overhead squat 3x5
Kroc rows 1x20
Ab wheel 5 sets
It seems better to me. I think you need to include some sort of back movement in the first workout. Dips and incline dumbbells as assistance in the same workout is a lot. Choose one of them and then do some sort of row instead of the other. If you like both of them you can rotate.
Also, is there a particular reason you seem to be using power cleans instead of deadlifts?[/quote]
I’m doing power cleans instead of deadlifts because I’ve been working deadlifts really hard for a while. My back is a little sore so I wanted to give it a break. I thought power cleans would be a good substitute because they are a pull from the floor, but aren’t as stressful on the body as deadlifts.
Are the RDLs not enough back work? If not, I can add something else.
I really want to do dips and DB incline in the same week if possible. Any thoughts on how to do this?
No way would I be cutting deadlifts, not for more than a week at least. Your deadlift and overall pulling strength is not going to improve if you stop doing them. A power clean is not a substitute for a deadlift, and there really isn’t any substitute other than DL variations (rack pulls, deficits, bands etc.).
If you can only work out 2 days a week and want to do something based on 5-3-1, I’m not sure why you wouldn’t follow the 2 day template Wendler already laid out.
