    Fierce 5 U/L alteration questions

    I asked these in the Fierce 5 comprehensive program list thread, but that thread is massive and it’s easy for posts to get lost there. Anyway, I'm moving from F5 bull body to U/L and I have a few questions.

    1. For flyes and reverse flyes, is there any benefit or downside to using the fly machine instead of DB's?
    2. Is there any problem doing back squats on both lower body days instead of back squats on A and front squats on B? I would really prefer to back squat twice a week.
    3. Upper B calls for pull ups 3x8. The issue is that I can only do 3-4 pull ups at a time right now. Should I sub in lat pulldowns, just do three sets of as many pull ups as I can, or do assisted pull ups?

    1- nah, fly machine is superior for those exercises.
    2- Recovery might be an issue depending on a few factors but you could still try and see how it goes, could do low bar squat then hi bar the next one.
    3- You could do 3x8 chin/pull downs just fine, or assisted if you want.

    If you don’t have access to an assisted pull up machine or bands, I’d use the lat pull down machine, but that’s just me. You will have far better form than struggling to force out pull ups that are only half reps by the final set.

    This. All of it.

    My gym has an assisted pull up machine, so I can either do those or lat pulldowns.
