alothrysis is off to a bad start
Default Tiny change to Bill Starr 5x5

Finally made the switch back to full-body, did 5/3/1 for a bit but full-body is where its at for me.

Anyways, I really like 5x5 work so I've started Bill Starr's 5x5. Added some assistance work as I did ICFs 5x5 for awhile and I just feel like I'm not doing nearly enough work without more assistance.

On Workout A, all sets are ramped. Mentally for me things just seem to be incredibly heavy by the time I get to set 5. So, I've thought to switch round the weights from set 4 and 5

ie: 100x5 150x5 200x5 250x5 300x5 <--Bill Starr
ie: 100x5 150x5 200x5 300x5 250x5 <--Me

I tried it my way once and Bill Starr's way once. Personally I feel my method made my mental state more clear and the poundages less daunting.
Would that affect me negatively in any way?

Thanks

I personally see nothing wrong with that. It is normal to evolve your training/routine over time. That is the kind of tweeking that may be benefical. Give it a go.
