I'm coming back to the gym after a near 8 month hiatus due to life.
My goal is to gain the mass that I lost during this months. I have been using 5/3/1 for at least year and a half, I know 5/3/1 is mostly for strength, but I also believe that the 5/3/1 framework allows me to have a different focus other than strength, as long as I keep that focus and don't go wondering between focus.
So, what would be the best recommendation for this? I was thinking of 5's pro with 3/5/1 but I'm doubtful between what should be the rest. Perhaps FSL? BBB? RP?
My idea was something like this:
3/5/1/ (Squat, DL, Bench) + FSL ( 4x8 on upper, 5x5 on lower) + Dips/Rows/Abs/Curl, 4x8 or 3x10, not sure yet, not really important either.
I would be doing this for at least two cycles, depending on results, and after that I would just do a more standard template.
Oh, I'm also gonna train 3 days a week, those two things are my only non-negociable things. Mass and 3 days a week, the rest, i'm really open to hear from ya.
