Right now I am currently on the 6 week cycle, using FSL and Jokers, a programmed 10 rep cap for 5s and 3s weeks, and going for a rep PR on weeks 3 and 6. It is all based on how I feel that day, and depending if I am feeling good or not, will determine if I do Jokers.
Below is my current template:
Week 1: 5s, Jokers, FSL
Week 2: 3s, Jokers, FSL
Week 3: 531 - go for rep PR
Week 4: 5s, Jokers, FSL
Week 5: 3s, Jokers, FSL
Week 6: 531 - go for rep PR (might do a few singles)
My question is more based on my long term goals, and using the Jokers and FSL correctly, as I do not want to wear myself out before reaching weeks 3 and 6 and setting a new PR. In your opinion, what’s the best way to program the FSL and Jokers? Is what I am doing too much? Too less? Or, am I on point? If I set a PR on weeks 3 or 6 I tend to keep my assistance light and get out of the gym; save my energy for another day.
Again, I am looking to achieve long term goals, and understand if I am feeling good on a certain day to go for it. I am just trying to get another opinion as I keep learning about training and myself.
