Hi guys, Long time no see.
I've been plodding along maintaining, not really adding much body weight, not really changing things up, but since I've been at the same level for a while I thought I'd rev things up and get back on strict 5/3/1 loading. I haven't missed many sessions but basically been maintaining.
Anyway - the 5/3/1 on the main lifts isn't the issue, I can't ever see using any other periodization for the main lifts, probably stick with 5/3/1 forever.
I'm just curious what your back day looks like at the moment, accessory wise, I'd like to throw in some new exercises to see how they feel, I have no real specific goal but at the moment my back day looks like...
Dumbbell rows - 3x25 reps
Pull-ups - random reps, 3-5 sets to fail
Occasionally I'll throw in reverse flies, but I'm annoyingly limited with time at the moment, about 40 minutes.
My flatmate got some sensible dumbbells and a pull up ... thing... in our flat so I can do accessory at home when needed in a later "session" if need be. Perhaps lat work? (though I guess the pull ups do well for them)
The reason I throw this question on here rather than experimenting with a random 10 from the directory is I just prefer your judgement than using a larger sample, if someone asked me what to include I'd go mental telling them they have to try dumbbell rows every back session, looking for similar enthusiasm on your favourites, see if I get the same benefit you did when you stumbled upon your fave.
Thanks (good to see the same "faces" are still active here)
