Hi all, a question for fellow lifters experienced in training using the conjugate method. A little background on my own recent training, I’ve been running 5/3/1 for most part of the past two years until switching to conjugate going on almost four months now with great results. My question is has anyone experimented with training total body conjugate? For example, doing upper body supplemental after max effort lower and vice versa and upper body RE after dynamic lower, etc?
I currently weight train three times a week, rolling over my fourth workout on the upcoming Sunday, so essentially I am training lower twice/upper once one week and vice versa the next. My plan is to allocate the volume which will have me training both lower and upper three times per week. DE/ME will still see 72 hours apart of course and the majority of my max effort sessions are for a 5rm, occasional 3rm or seldom 1rm attempts. I use Prilepin’s table to govern volume, as it’s pretty spot on with my recovery ability and do two yoga sessions per week in between lifting sessions.
The only thing changing would be switching out supplemental and assistance. Anyone happy to share experience will be greatly appreciated. I’ve also put this plan into action today and would be glad to share how it goes with anyone interested. Thanks in advance!
