I've been doing some reading about the 5-3-1 method. I plan on trying it full on later in the year. Both the powerlifting template and the bodybuilding template he has set up and see how they compare. My question about it is can I cherry pick from it and expect good strength gains? For example, I really want to increase my leg strength but I like how my training feels for the rest of my body.
Can I just apply the squat template and expect the same kind of gains? I do squats/quads Monday and deadlifts/hamstrings Friday. My deads are progressing very well and I do a similar type of set up for both days. I was thinking about trying the 5-3-1 for my squat day and see if my progression is a little bit better. Has anyone tried that or is the program better when done in its totality. It probably is, but like I said, I like how everything else is going, squats just aren't going the way I want.
