I'm looking for some ideas/ advice on adding additional training to my regime, I presently train for strength using Jim Wendlers 5/3/1 protocol, which is a 4 day split with one day each dedicated to: Squat, Bench Press, Military Press and Deadlift with 3-4 assistance exercises each day. I am enjoying this and have been for a while, am making strength gains etc. My question is, if I am still feeling energised and not too sore (mainly in the upper body, my legs get worked into the ground due to heavy squatting and deadlifting) if it would be overkill to add in 2-3 additional short workouts at home, in a circuit fashion, using combinations of upper body exercises and kettlebell swings, im thinking swiss ball crunches and hyper-extensions for added core work, band pull aparts for back volume, pressups etc, interspersed with swings for additional calorie burn and more posterior chain work. Has anyone any experience of adding additional training to heavy strength training?
For info i'm 6' 2'', about 315lbs at about 28% - 30% body fat and looking to lose body fat and at the very least maintain strength, if not increase it. Thoughts?
EDIT: I should point out:
- I mean 2-3 additional workouts over the week...
- I train in a morning but after a night shift, find this works best for me motivation and energy wise, so the added work would be on an evening at home
