    No, I have not. A tad too much volume for me without some "assistance."

    I was thinking it wouldnt be a bad routine for while on a cycle as recovery should be great but wasnt sure. Most post I have read on it have all been positive but I would like to get some feedback from someone I trust then a random forum guy. 5/3/1 and WS4SB is my bread and butter routines.. Every time I try something new I end up dissatisfied and end up going back to one of those

    I'm in the same boat. I rotate back and forth between these two depending on what I have going on at the time.

    I used a modified version of it back when I was bodybuilding. And have prescribed similar formats to clients.

    531 seems to have that affect on ppl lol, I was running it with good results until I broke my arm, so now that I'm back lifting and starting to compete again, I've jumped on a high volume routine, my body seems to respond well from volume 15-20sets on major and 12-15 minor, 5 days rest on muscle groups.

    Wow talk about off topic sittin on the lounge with my iPhone bored as lmao

    Phat was good for me but I just enjoy working the muscles once a week.

  17. Similar format...

    Upper body strength
    Lower body strength
    Rest
    Horizontal hypertrophy
    Vertical hypertrophy
    Lower body hypertrophy
    Rest

    I got even funkier with the mods to include some NLP in it, such that

    Weeks 1-3

    UBP 2-4 reps
    LBP 4-5 reps
    Horizontal 10-12 reps
    Vertical 8-10 reps
    LBH 12-16 reps

    Weeks 4-6
    UBP 4-5 reps
    LBP 2-4 reps
    Horizontal 12-16 reps
    Vertical 10-12 reps
    LBH 8-10 reps

    Weeks 7-9
    UBP doubles
    LBP singles
    Horizontal 8-10
    Vertical 12-16
    LBH 10-12

    Week 10 - deload
    2 full body sessions. 1 exercise per muscle group 2 x 8 with weight used for 16 reps


    Assistance/ancillary movements, and hypertrophy movements were rotated every micro cycles
