I’ve just completed a year of Greyskull LP, and it brought my lifts up to 2 x body weight squat, 1.5 x body weight bench, 1 x body weight OHP, and just over a 2 x body weight deadlift. All my lifts have now began to stall and progress is gradually grinding to a halt. Now I didn’t gain much weight throughout the last year, was more trying to gain lean mass but as long as my lifts were improving I was happy.
I’m at a point now where I have increased my calories as I know I need to start adding good mass if I want my numbers to keep rising… but is now a good time to jump onto 5/3/1? Or could increased calories squeeze more out of Greyskull?
I love the Greyskull routine, the AMRAP sets are great! I like the look of 5\3\1 as it’s got similar aspects to Greyskull with the AMRAP sets and setting PR’s… but am I ready?
