Im going to start 531 and I would like you guys to look at my program and give me the "all good to go".
For the past year I have been doing WS4SB 3 day program. My goals are now to put on more size and get stronger with the main lifts, keep conditioning levels reasonable and keep healthy. I do have a history of lower back issues and my left shoulder can be a bit "dodgy" with too much pressing, so I am going to have to keep a close eye on these issues, and keep on top of my daily mobility and band work.
Anyway this is my initial plan. Please feel free to comment on it.
Squats 531 (pull-ups in b/w sets)
Front squats 5 x 10
Alternate every 2 weeks b/w leg curls and RDLs 5 x 10
Bench 531 (pull-ups in b/w sets)
dB bench press with slight incline 5 x 10
Alternate every 2 weeks b/w dB rows and BB rows 5 x 10
Deadlift 531 (first few cycles will be very light and more about correct form)
Weighted pull-ups 5 x 5, (or should I do 5 sets of 10??)
nb: there is no way Im doing 5 sets of 10 for deadlifts.
Overhead press 531 (pull-ups in b/w sets)
Shoulder shocker 3 sets
Weighted dips 5 x 5
nb: I don't want to press 5 x 10 as my dodgy shoulder would not last more than a few weeks
A couple days a week I will add some curls and some ab work. Most days I will be riding my bike to the gym about 4 miles, and I will spend one day a week doing some land sprints for conditioning.
How does that look? Do i need more pulling?
