Boring But Big 3 Month Challenge - 3 Days/Week?
Question: I am currently doing the 5/3/1 BBB 3 days a week due to my schedule and i am trying the flipping of assistance like in the 3 month challenge. However on the deload week its hard to do the assistance exercises like that without it having to carry over to the following week. Is this fine or would that be detrimental to my progress or is there another approach? Any suggestions? And any info is greatly appreciated. Also, thanx for all of yer insight, articles, books ect...everything has been very helpful. And thank you for yer time for that alone i am grateful!
Answer: The BBB 3 Month Challenge is made for a 4 day/week training, not 3 days. This is part of a bigger 5/3/1 Year Long Training Plan that I am trying to develop. I already have the Strength Phase done (the Boring But Big 3 Month Challenge is the Hypertrophy Phase) and am trying to figure out the next 2 phases. If I were you, I'd just do the deload exactly how the book shows for 3 days/week - that way everything lines up and is hit perfectly. Also, I would probably eliminate the "5x10" on this week since you are doubling up some exercises.
