Jim, Your Thoughts on 3/5/1 First Cycle, 5/3/1 Second Cycle?


#1

During the leader cycle, would there be any problem doing 3/5/1 in the first cycle and 5/3/1 in the second?

Meaning basically its heavy, light, heavy, light, heavier, heavy


#2

This might be one of the best questions I’ve been asked in the past year or so.

It would be:

Medium
Light
Heavy
Light
Medium
Heavy

There is probably a lot of cool things you could do with this but I don’t really think (actually I know) that it won’t make any difference for majority of people. This, however, could be used for an advanced lifter and probably manipulate the volume/intensity. Personally, I have no desire to mess with this; everyone I’ve work with is a beginner, including myself at this point. But if you love this shit, have at it. It’s incredibly interesting.

And thanks for asking a good question.
