Just to keep some fresh stuff in this forum.
Been doing this for about a month or so now and really like it. I've had the idea floating around in my head for a long time, and seeing CalJack do his abbreviated 5/3/1 routine pushed me in this direction.
I feel much better overall. Not beat up and tired. And the best part is I'm dying to lift. Before it was becoming somewhat of a chore.
Here's the plan:
Mon - Deadlifts and Rows
Wed - Bench and dips (or skullcrushers)
Fri - Squats and Curls
Sun - Seated overhead press and calves
So I only do 2 lifts a day. Like when I say rows, I don't mean bent rows, then dumbbell rows, then machine rows. Its ONE rowing movement.
I do atleast 5 sets on all lifts, but not more than 10 sets.
For the main lifts I usually do 5 reps or less, sometimes 8.
For the assistance lifts its unlimited. I was doing reps between 5 - 30.
If you borrow this routine, you must mail me a check for $4.99. Every week.
