Glad to hear. I don’t know where i got it from (possibly borge fagerli or reading some stuff). The whole cardio/strength interference effect got me thinking as well.
I’m now doing a 3-4x training Upper/lower split. And the most common way of structuring these are an “intensity” day and then a more volume or speed day (lighter way more explosive).
So I usually picture the 5x5s (heavy day) together rather than saying doing a heavy 5x5 bench…then for the back (pendlay row) do speed pulls. Although maybe that works well.
I personally like mixing rep ranges and doing all sorts of stuff during workout (2a novelty)
EDIT: Actually Coach if you have any favorite upper/lower training programs to recommend would love to hear. I’m doing snatch grip dead/front squat and then snatch grip high pull/reverse DB lunge fo rmy lower body.
Upper body is the standard bench & row and then push press & weighted chins.
Assistance being the usual suspect of laterals some arm work on lower body days etc.
For me it’s mostly…should i stick to the 5x5 tried and true scheme (varying straight sets vs. ramping). Or should I go for a more layers intense style (rest pause/cluster). And can I do that wtihin upper/lower (multiple compound lifts) effectively…
