I follow 5/3/1 and my split is basically two upper body days and two lower body days. One of the lower body days looks like this:
- Walking Lunges (DB) 3-4 sets
- RDL or BB Hip Thrusts 3-4 sets
- Leg extensions with leg curls (superset)
While the other looks like this:
-Front Squats or Bulgarian Split Squats?
- KB swings
What do you think of the layout for those two days? It has been effective so far, but I'm not sure if I should use front squats or split squats. Both are great exercises, so which ever one I pick, what should be my rep/set scheme for the exercise? I would like to add that my deadlift is quite a bit stronger than my squat. So which exercise would have greater carryover for the back squat? I feel like I should strengthen my quads for a better back squats?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated guys. Thanks!
