I’ve tried running the two day 5/3/1 for athletes with a two day full body split. Squat and bench one day, Deadlift and OHP another day both using the 5/3/1 rep scheme and with assistance work.
I like this template and layout but i find the AMRAPs too tiring and fatiguing on the lower body lifts especially In-season.
Would it be feasible and still produce slow and steady strength gains if i was to follow the 5’s Pro for the Squat and Deadlift and leave the Bench press and OHP with the standard 5/3/1 rep scheme (Pushing for PR’s with a rep or two left in the tank). My bench and OHP are also lagging behind my squat and deadlift so i thought this might help me get stronger on those whilst not over doing it mid season.
My stats (If it helps)
Bench 110kg, OHP 60kg, Squat 165kg and Deadlift 230kg.
Thanks in advance, any help would be much appreciated!
