    5x5s are generally beginner routines. I would recommend a program like 531 or Juggernaut Method for long term training with the occasional use (2-4 times a year) of Smolov Jr.

    Weak wrists

    What can I do to strengthen my wrists? They bench backwards when I bench no matter how hard I grip.

    No issues with DL grip.

    Yeah. Is fine to train both, but you need access to lifting equipment to properly perform volume sets. Think about it... one rep of 135 on an OHP is equivalent to 3 reps with a 45 lbs kettlebell, as...

    Tbh, youd probably be better off just training the bigger, main lifts right now. The other stuff is probably just going to be redundant unless you have a long lifting history.

    Yeah, that's a pretty strong bench for someone who is 122 lbs.

    If you're taking 7 days off, go to the gym a couple times and lift lightly. The 531 (Wendler) deload protocol for main lifts is 40%x5, 50%x5, 60%x5.

    Personally, I like to some assistance work too....

    Hey, I actually time my rest sets, haha.

    Bench 2 to 3 minutes. If I'm going for an AMRAP on my final set, 5 minutes.

    Squat and DL 3-6. If I'm going to an AMRAP on final set, 8 minutes.
