Hey Jim, I have a friend who is cutting while using 5/3/1. He is using the “Simplest Strength Template” you wrote in your original 5/3/1 book.
Now, after reading beyond 5/3/1 I see so many new methods and I was wondering: which template would you recommend the most for using 5/3/1 while cutting?
Also, would you recommend doing joker sets and BBB at the same time? (this question is for myself)[/quote]
I would think that 5/3/1 would be a very good program when on a caloric deficit since it promotes strenght and that is what you want to work your ass off to keep. Cut the volume on assistance work. Train to keep the strenght and muscle you have and do hill sprints etc to burn calories. Be patient. [/quote]
I also think 5/3/1 is great when on a caloric derelict but I was wondering what template would Jim recommend best for cutting, cause I know BBB is too much when cutting and you need to eat like a man when doing that… I used SST for my cut but I wanted to know what Jim thinks and should he do Joker sets or First Set Lasts and stuff like that or is that also too much on the body.
Also, for myself I’m trying to see if joker sets are a good idea when combining them with BBB
