Primal 531
 
For longer term planning I dally over doing Primal 531. Because I lift at home I will not be able to Bench and Squat heavy (I know, then it`s problably not Primal 531 anymore, but I mean the cycle).

What would you think about a A/B approach done three times a week MWF:

A: Deadlift Primal 531
B: Press Primal 531

with Mon:A (5x5), Wed:B(5x5), Fr:A(5x3), Mo:B(5x3)....and so on?


Thanks in advance

Depending on your deadlift strength it might not be a good idea to deadlift that frequently with heavy weight. If your deadlift weight is relatively moderate you should be ok.

Im not sure about the program tbh, but i know you can get great gains from working 'just' 2 days per week. I would probably run it twice a week and see how I got on... depending on specific goals obviously.

my deadlift strength sucks, best is BWx2,2 for 3 reps (about 185kg) what do you consider to be moderate?

yeah you are right, was thinking about it as well...

strength: less rest
hypertrophy: more rest

d'accord?

thanks!

I am not totally sure what primal 5/3/1 is, but I am running 5/3/1 with bench numbers turned down to focus on OH strength and and squat numbers turned way down due to recovering from knee surgery. It seems to be working fine for me.

That is a strong deadlift. I wouldn't recommend deadlifting heavy more than once a week.
