DND brings back middle school. I was in too many things to get to role play…if I remember…isn’t it? I’m feeling old :crazy_face:

Roflmao. Yes it’s definitely role play.

You know what, I used to hate deadlifts, but then “you’ll”;see results in your glutes…makes them like one of my favs. Glad you have fun in dnd. When I’m bored I played Wow, diablo or Starcraft, mess in our music studio, workout, cook, bake, take care of dogs, clean house and hang out with friends. I’m trying to figure out what to make for breakfast since I’m taking a rest day.

dang two articles posted about deadlifts today

i completed the cycle as planned with no hiccups.

i should be starting cycle number 2. However i have a few things in life that are pushing out my ability to get the the gym

i am also unsure if i like this program. i have been doing variations of 531 for a while but… i dont like the new set up of 1 push 1 pull and 1 ab.

i am thinking maybe… main lifts original 531 with typical body building accessories.
something like:

squat 531
RDL 3-5x12-15
Leg press 3-5x12-15
Hip Thrust 3-5x12-15
Calf Raises 3-5x12-15

Bench 531
Db row 3-5x12-15
Incline Bench 3-5x12-15
pull up/lat pull down 3-5x12-15
Triceps 3-5x12-15
weak point iso 3-5x12-15
abs 3-5x12-15

Deadlift 531
Front squat 3-5x12-15
RDL 3-5x12-15
split squat 3-5x12-15
calves 3-5x12-15

Ohp 531
pull up/ lat pull down 3-5x12-15
Db Bench 3-5x12-15
DB Row 3-5x12-15
Shoulders 3-5x12-15
Biceps 3-5x12-15
abs 3-5x12-15

Decided on full body roughly 3 times a week. Will run this for 3 weeks and see if I like it.

Both the 4 split bodybuilding and the 3 days full body looks good, and it’s a matter of how many times you want to go to the gym and how well you recover, but most of all, we should enjoy the days in the gym.

I like the OG with the PR sets.
