I was going to go down to 4 lifting days as opposed to 5, but I really think it does not help at all so I will stick to 5. I want to try one more thing and then I will have it down lol.
Huh *Lightbulbs going off inside my head*, Westside didn't work too great for my bench press. Smolov is great for squat, but I am not sure if my press is going to benefit from the template, I feel like I might burn out like I did on the Russian Volume program. Both exercises you mentioned, log and inc, are presses, I might have to give some serious thought to trying 5-3-1 for my press.
