Default Bodybuilding volume question

Built my strength to a decent level I think. Recently switched to a 4 day bodybuilding type split and it really seems to beat up my joints. Only 5 weeks in and I need a rest. Would it make more sense to deload every 4th week, or do you think 12-16 per big bodypart is too much?

My squat sets are around 320-350, deadlift I do 400s for reps and bench press my reps are mid to upper 200s.

A lot of people find a deload to be required, usually right around that time frame. I believe 5/3/1 uses a deload week for every 4th week, dropping weights down to 50-75% 1RM, as opposed to the 85-95% range normal range.

Try it out..take a week with little work, and rest. You should see a marked improvement on your next workout.. Not saying you'll jump the weights by 50#, but your body will appreciate the rest..

Post up your exact routine, including warm up sets and be as exact in the form style as you can. IE: full range of motion, etc.

Rick, 5/3/1 isnt bad but its really not the best for a bodybuilder. dont get me wrong, it can be used and you may get some decent results, but its really a program that is built with a focus on strength.
