Hi Jim, my post got buried, just would like to make sure I understood your suggestion.

I think you are being extremely cautious. Just do one cycle of a TM of 205 with SSL at 5x5. 5's PRO for all sets. See how you feel. If you feel good, do a very "non psyche" approx 5RM test (jumping 40 pounds) and establish a new TM.

Squat day

A) SSB squat 5/3/1

B1) Deadlift 5's pro
B2) Abs 5x10-20

Deadlift day

A) Deadlift 5/3/1
B) Deadlift SSL 5x5

C1) SSB Squat 5x10
C2) Abs 5x10-20

Thank you very much!

Knock out the “SSB Squat 5x10” and do FSL, 5x5. It’ll be better for your back, recovery and bar speed. Win, win, win.
