Some regular posters here might have seen a good few of my posts now, all with one thing in common, I overthink everything and can never decide. After reading Jim’s latest blog on his site, I was inspired to stop fucking around, go back to basics i.e. train hard but smart, make progress and most importantly keep myself accountable.
Here’s my new plan and its staying because it’s simple. I’m using the 3/5/1 Powerlifting template and assistance is basic. I couldn’t get my head around Beyond 5/3/1 no matter how many times I read the book, sorry Jim. My accessories are plain and simple, with X total reps, no sets x reps. Just work the move and the muscle as much as possible. For the chins supersetting, I plan on using chins until I can’t do as many reps as the following pressing set, then move to pull-downs (e.g. on week 2, I use pull-downs only when I cant hit 5 chins in a set) because chinning is a weakness and needs to be addressed by just fucking doing chin ups.
If you want to follow my plan, I’ll find out how to upload a full document somehow but I’ve attached Week 1 as a topic of discussion. Comments and critiques welcome.
