After 3 solid cycles of 531, I have now confirmed to have "flatlined"
My weights are still low and the reps are still high on every single week (12-15 on squats, 13-16 on press, 14-20 on bench, and no deadlifts), I really like chasing new rep records each week/month… However, lately I’ve been having a lot of days where I cant beat last week/months PR or I’ll actually get less reps than usual. So my question to you would be, based off your experience, what are some effective ways to start PRing again? I follow Triumvirate template (very closely) and dont have a deadlift day(off day now), Should I start pausing on the + sets? change assistance work? What do you think would do the trick?
EDIT: I have read the multiple ways to break plateaus but I just want to know based off your experiences, what has actually worked for you?
