REVERSE CURLS- paused
Got my 5x5 written. Its in 3 week runs.
Its a combination of ss5x5,rippetoe 3x5 and even the original 1x5. The trick to avoid stalling is i undulated it using The Cube Methods version of undulation.
Cube method has you do all the 3 days at diff. Loads. Heavy/medium/light. It takes 3 week to rotate all days through that cycle. What this does is ensures you only have 1 heavy session each week vs. All on typical periodization programs.
So all 3 lifts you do would be at a diff. Load each day whereas in a typical 5x5 all 3 lifts would be 5x5s. A ton of volume that stalls fast.
Row5x5 (rotate eack week for 3 weeks)
I used the same percentages as the cube method as well. Which are low and safe. .65/.70/.80
If you complete all reps n sets over 3 weeks. Add 5 -10 pds and do it again.
I think this is something that woukd work longer term and for intermediates.
Also you have an option to rep out on last set
And on 3x5 and 1x5 weeks theres an option to rep out 80% of your top set.
