I love the big three and love to do them all in the same workout, but I would like some help with how to make it work volume-wise if I wanted to Bench, squat and deadlift x3 week… Monday, wednesday and friday (I cant go to gym on weekends)+ accessory work.
Main lifts are done at 80% - 90% 1RM, accessory lifts at 70%
Is 5 sets per exercise on the main lifts too much volume when done every other day?
Also if I wanted to use pendulum style periodization, should I use wave loading or straight sets?
(if wave loading isnt too much volume when done x3 week)
Another thing, should I use medium, light, heavy day split on my weekly workouts?
I’m natural lifter, so the volume thing is a big consideration of mine and I would like to transition from 2 days a week to 3 days a week lifting schedule.
Any help would be greatly appreciated <3
