Default periodization of HLM training

hi there,

i am currently unsure how to train in a periodized way with a HLM or H/L.

I made good results with hlm but the H day was always difficult for me. i start too light or too heavy. My norm was 3x3 and i wonder if its necessary to go THAT heavy each cycle for continous improvement.The L and M days were always good to progess on, but on the H day i used to stall really early.

Also i can only train 2x the week full body so i thought of following periodization:
the most important thing is, that the relation of the heavy and light days is maintained. MY idea would be, that the heavier day gets always heavier and that the light day fits in with is.

So that would be it:

1.cycle: H: 3x8-10 2min rest L: 2x15-20 1 min rest
2.cycle: H: 5x5-6 3min rest L: 3x10-12 90 sec rest
3.cycle: H: 3x3-5 4 min rest L: 3x8-10 2 min rest
To sharpen the contrast: On H day i would use babrell exercises and on L day dumbbells and cables. this emphasizes the H/L contrast even more.
