b3rnhard is off to a bad start
Default 5/3/1 full body workout

hey!

i have been reading here for some time and train for about a year.

i made good progress with starting strength and now with bill starrs single factor 5x5.

in about a month i will plateau with 5x5 and change to a 5/3/1 style programming as this seems to be a perfect programming for steady progress over years.

right now my PRs are:

squat: 150kgx3
bench: 115kgx1
deadlift: 170kgx1
overhead press:67,5kgx1

what i dont like about 531 is the 4 times a week programming and the split style. so this is my "531 like" template:

Squat 531
Bench repetition effort
chins

Deadlift 531
Overhead Press 3x8
Power Shrugs 3x8


Bench 531
Squat 1x8
Dips 5x5
kroc rows


What do you guys think about this aproach?

p.s.: i know wendler says "dont **** around" but i dont think split training is necessary doing a three times per week template

p.p.s.:sorry for my bad english
