Spinal Tap Joker Sets

Hey Jim,

I’m going to give Spinal Tap a try over the next six weeks for my upper body lifts, and I just have a quick question regarding your recommendation of doing Joker Sets with that variation: Can you do Joker Sets for BOTH the 3 and the 531 part of the day, or do you choose one?

In general, I recommend only once. In theory you can do both but it is never recommended unless I’m coaching an athlete personally. Then things get based on a lot more factors and i can read the athlete.
