Is that what FSL is meant to look like? I must've misremembered what the book says, and assumed that what I was doing was FSL.
I have done it a couple of ways (opposite lift for BBB sometimes), but basically I do the 531 scheme for the week, hit some Jokers if it feels good, then pyramid back down through the 531 weights hitting minimum reps only, but usually paused (not actually sure how I got this confused with FSL). Then I'll do 5 sets of 10. THEN I'll do some smaller accessory moves.
Squats I don't do the pyramid, and deads I just drop the weight after the Jokers and do some relevant assistance work.
Looks like a lot when I write it down, but I've never had issues finishing a workout. Obviously in later cycles the Jokers and pyramiding back down (especially paused) get harder, and I phase those out before it gets to the point where I fail.
It's helped me get stronger up until I stopped doing it recently when equipment became more limited (bench went from 100kg to 120kg in 3 months, press from 60kg to 70kg, squat 165kg to 185kg, deads from 170kg to 200kg stood on a plate).
That being said, I appreciate the reminder (from you and Jim) that I can get a bit carried away with volume, even if it doesn't feel hard at the time. I'm still unhappy with both presses, and when I get back to 531 I will be reassessing how much I need to be doing on those movements.
