Have run a few 5/3/1 cycles recently just finished Beefcake so have three week cycle of plus sets then 5x5 fsl before a delay and into a new programme.
Looking to do BBB again as I have used in the past however hitting body parts twice a week as higher frequency has worked well for me in the past.
I was thinking 5’s pro for 6 weeks:
Squat 3x5’s pro
Bench 3x5’s pro
Pull ups 5x10
Deadlift 3x5’s pro
Press 3x5’s pro
Deload and then 3 weeks of:
Squat 5/3/1+ as conventional
Squat 5x5 FSL
Bench 5/3/1+ as conventional
Bench 5x5 FSL
Dead 5x5 FSL
Ohp 5x5 FSL
Reason I’ve gone away from opposite exercise for the second three week block is that I will use joker sets if I’m feeling good and it may be harder to recover and hit that body part again later on that week. Then will be hitting another deload before going through the above again but changing the 5x10 work so dumbbell presses instead of bench, front squat instead of regular, sldl etc but keeping the 5/3/1 lifts the same as 5 pro’s.
Am I on the right track with this routine? Also really loved the dips twice a week on Beefcake would it be too much to add dips into one or both of the pressing days?
Many thanks for taking time to read my post and if you get a chance to reply that would be great.
