Jim, first of all I want to thank you for the amazing program. I have made tremendous progress over these past 5 cycles, and have learned alot from your knowledge training, life, and hell, music too.
I’ve got a quick question on what I should do for my upcoming cycle.
First i’ll give some basic background info that could maybe could possibly help to answer this:
17 y/o, played high school footbal n trained serious fresh & soph year now im junior dont play fb anymore but still love to train and have done 5 cycles of 531. Great majority, like almost all, of my workouts i have gone in and hit PRs on last sets and been making progress. did BBB for first couple/few cycles then kinda changed to doing variations of the lifts supplemental 5x10 so not BBB but yeah did that for a cycle
-LAST CYCLE did FSL 3x5 for DL, FSL paused 3-4 x 3-5 on Bench and Squat and Triumvirate for Press (Press main, dips 5x10,chins5x10, have very limited time on press day) all while still hitting PRs on last set basically every session.
current estimated 1RMs, piss poor numbers but here they are, better than they used to be (had a bench plateau for a while but cause i was being dumbass,finaly realized after too fucking long)
Press 137 lb
Deadlift 374 lbs
Bench 186 lbs
Squat 291 lbs
Wondering for next cycle if should i use which structure?
(btw i lift 4x/wk mon tues thurs fri; run 10 hill sprints 2x/week: wed & sat)
5’s PRO + FSL 5x5
50-100 push, 50-100 pull, +/-50 single leg/core
(Farmers walks @ end of Squat workout(?) (could i put FW’s in w/ this? if i put them in itd be the first time to implement them at all)
OR should i keep doing what im doing with the main work making progress like i am
and do FSL 5x5 and do new method of assistance?-
(same schedule & conditioning)
Main 5/3/1 + FSL 5x5 (maybe do 3/5/1 and hit reps PRs on w1&3?)
50-100(?) push 50-100(?) pull +/-50 single leg/core
(same ? w/ farmers walks)
Thanks in advance. If both of these have somethin fucky goin on could you lead me to know what needs to change if need be, im somewhat new to this forum so i have just now recently discovered stuff like Leader/Anchor and the total reps assistance method and things like that & im trying to learn as much as i can w out overcomplicating shit. Thanks.
