Joker Sets: Yes or No?

Does ANYBODY still use joker sets?
If so when and how?
With or without PR sets?
With FSL afterwards?


I sometimes use joker sets during my anchors. When I do, I set the cycle up as 3/5/1 with PR sets and jokers on the 3 and 1 weeks, and 5x5 FSL on the middle 5 week.


I do the same thing on some of my anchors

I’ll use them on an anchor/anchor-esque program.

With PR sets.

After the PR set.

With FSL or something similar afterwards.


Nay -Jim doesn’t recommend them anymore. From last month:

“my biggest regrets was ever publishing them. They are fairly worthless for 99% of lifters.”
