How’s it going everyone? I’m on my 3rd cycle of 531. Used to be big and strong, joined the military, big and strong went away, so I’m trying to get it back. Hoping someone can check this out and tell me if there’s anything obviously wrong.
I’m 205#, 5’10", like 12% bf, good diet.
175 overhead press
All of those are my TM for 531 and I use 90% of those for my 531 sets. I don’t much care about 1rms anymore, athletic balance is the goal.
med ball slams
incline bench 3x10
arm/upper back superset
good morning 3x10
med ball slam
ohp/DB row superset 3x10
dips/shrugs superset 3 sets near max
clean 3x3 (med weight)
HIIT (burpees, battle ropes, tires, etc.)
I’m noticing the weights are feeling heavier, but I think that may be due to the fact I just added the conditioning work in this (my 3rd) cycle, of which I’m in week 2. Not sure, so thought I’d get some advice before I fuck it all up.
On my 5/3/1 PR sets, I usually can get 10/7/4, though I cut the sets at 7/5/3 regardless. Recently though, getting my 7/5/3 is more challenging than I feel it should be. I would assume this is all part of the 5 steps forward, 3 steps back idea. So by the time I hit 5 cycles, I’ll have to go back to my 2nd cycles numbers.
Thanks for any help you guys have.
