Jim, What Do You Think of my Plan?

Day 1
Squat - TM x 1
Deadlift - 5/3/1
Bench - 5x5 @ SSL

Day 2
Squat - 5/3/1
Bench - TM x 1
Deadlift - 3x5 @ SSL

Day 3
Deadlift - TM x 1
Bench - 5/3/1
Squat - 4x5 @ SSL

Cycle 2 would look the same except instead of doing 5/3/1 PR sets, back it down to 5s Pro and instead of doing singles at your Training Max, perform PR sets with your TM.

What do you think of this? Its obviously powerlifting oriented. Should there be some tweaks like maybe switching main work to 3/5/1? or what adjustments should be made to the supplemental work to accommodate fatigue later on in the second or third cycles approaching a meet?

Would love your input on this

(I came up with this, and I have not seen it before. But I am not claiming to be the original producer of this template as it is probable that I may not be. Hell it could be in the book but I don’t have it with me and I haven’t seen/don’t know every single template in it)

Do you have Forever? If so, the Volume and Strength Template is similar to this.

Yes I have the forever book. Like I said I haven’t seen every program in there and I haven’t had the book with me in a while. I’m in college, the book is at home.

Do you have a meet picked out? If so, how many weeks out is it?
