    Default Replacing the Negatives With 3's

    Currently doing HST six days a week and having excellent results with it. I was wondering if it was possible to replace the 2 weeks of negatives with sets of 3 instead? I'm aware that some simply repeat the 5's but I can't envision hitting my maxes with the 5s everyday for 2 weeks.

    So, I was thinking of something like this.

    2 weeks of 5 reps
    2 weeks of 3 reps using my 3 rep max every workout, 6 days a week.
    9 days of SD

    Instead of using your 3 rep maxes every workout, instead start with your 5 RM and progress up to your 3 RM. Two weeks of your 3 RM could get rough. If you progress from 5 RM to 3 RM, that would wear you out a lot less. I think you should take one or two sessions after that also to find 1 RMs on some of your lifts if you can.
