i have been doing Boring but big for the last year and iam very happy with the results. I was thinking about changing my program to tackel some weakpoints i got. I read a lot and iam confused how to program it, and what excercises to swap. My current draft tends to have light assistance work after the 5/3/1, but iam not sure if this is ideal. Below a list of my current weak points and a routine iam thinking about. Would be great to hear your two cents about it.
- Benchpress: the initial push of my chest, when the bar is at the lowest point
- Deadlift: at the start, my lower back starts to round
- Squats: in the middle, it feels that i tend to “good morning” squat
Here is my draft. All 5x10 work is done with a light weight, taken over from the BBB program…
front squat 5x10
Back Raises 3x15
Dead benchpress 3x3 max effort
dumbell incline 5x10
Barbell Rows 5x10
good mornings 5x10
hamstring raises 3x15
overhead press 5/3/1
Dumbell Rows 5x10
I need to see if the pullups are to much for the deadlift day, but i plan to do the pullups in between my back raises pauses… Iam not sure on what day to do the front squats/good mornings. Maybe just switch those two? The other thing is: does dead benchpress help me with my weak point, or should i focus on something else?
Thanks in advance
