    How to tweak my routine for Versa-1 cycle?


    I am looking for some advice on how to tweak my current routine for my Versa-1 cycle. I am currently doing Wendlers 5/3/1 with the triumvirate for assistance work. I am at the end of week two of a 4 week "cycle" for 531 and I plan on completing week three, upping my weights and starting a new cycle without a deload week in sync with the start of my PA cycle.

    My question is this: Should i switch to a different style of lifting to maximize size and strength gains (such as a higher volume routine, back to 5x5, or a more traditional bodybuilding split?) or keep doing 531 and increase load more quickly or should I stick to the prescribed increase according to the program?

    My goals are mainly recomp and strength. My nutrition is pretty solid and i am using the leangains/if approach.

    Its Versa 1, not a test cycle. Just stick to your current routine.

    I realize that, I just wasn't sure if it would be more beneficial to switch to something I can progress faster with in order to take advantage of the pretty significant strength gains the beta-loggers reported.

    I do appreciate the input though, thanks!

    Versa-1 will help with whatever you training goals are. No need for a specific type of training to take "advantage" of versa-1. Diet will take care of your recomp just keep lifting heavy and strength gains will come. I look forward to you results.
