I was planning on using the template for my post-meet training (and onwardly indefinitely) but the high rep stuff for a “big” barbell movement doesn’t work for me, unless the result is shit form and more sit form leading to quickly arising problems. While I hate people modifying the 5/3/1 programme (seems like a cop out), I’d like to know if Wendler himself would sign off on a template like, but using an 8/6/4 approach, e.g. 8’s week (after 5’s main work), 6’s week (after 3’s main work) and 4’s week (after 5/3/1, using an x8, x6, x4 kind of deal).
If this is sensible, preferably on the side of advisable for my goals of strength as priority, what kind of percentages would you prescribe to such?
Many thanks, Jim and to all those who comment and share their knowledge/opinions/critiques
