5/3/1 template

Post by NickAbe57 » Tue Aug 28, 2012 1:43 pm

I know, you're probably tired of these questions by now but perhaps you can help with one more...

Been running 5/3/1 with some success, put approx 50 lbs on all lifts. anyway, i'm going to start soccer season soon, both outdoor and indoor, and am wondering which template i should use while im in season. two a week? full body? I'm doing 3-4x a week right now.

thanks for any help

How many times a week there's soccer? What's the intensity? What kind of training? Do you have specific goals? Is there anything else in your life except lifting and soccer (How much time do you actually have to eat, train and sleep?)

These help us to get started. Doing resistance training on-season with a different sport is one topic that will surely cause very diverse opinions and hate-hoots.

Well, I'll be playing Saturdays and Sundays, lots of running as you might imagine. I don't know how to qualify the intensity; its a competitive league, many teams are comprised of former division I soccer athletes, and our team ordinarily finishes in the top 3. the goals inquiry is a good question. Before, I wanted to gain size, now I think i would like to maintain my size, perhaps increase endurance and get stronger if possible. I know it will be difficult while 'serving two masters'. I work an 8-5, 40-44 hours a week, so nothing too grueling or anything.

thanks for the help

You might want to group your lifting from Sunday post game to about Wednesday. You can go everyday in there if you want. Just give your muscles a chance to recover before game time.

I would do the "I'm Not Doing Jack $h1t" or "just North Of Vag" template.

Wendler has couple of 2-days a week templates for athletes or busy person's

Something like

day1 531 squat, bench, assistance
day2 531 deadlift, press, assistance

this can be too hard on lower body though

another template would be

week 1

day 1 531 bench,assistance
day 2 531 squat, assistance

week 2

day 1 531 press, assistance
day 2 531 deadlift, assistance

I guess both would work if the assistance focuses on upper body depends on your body i guess. I barely recover between dl and squat even without assistance not to mention sports :)
