So I’m just finishing up my first cycle of Building the Monolith and I’m all about it. The volume is great and I’m responding well to it. But it is my understanding that BtM isn’t meant to be done more than 1 cycle at a time. So my questions are:
How many cycles of something else should be done before jumping back into BtM? Is 1 cycle of something else enough before staring BtM again?
I really like the full body workouts - essentially everything about BtM works really well for me. What would be the best templates I could cycle in between BtM cycles? Triumvirate from the first 5/3/1 book is one that comes to mind for the full body aspects. Were there any templates that are particularly well paired with BtM to make a full year plan?
(My goals are size primarily and then strength)
