    Faster Progression on Fierce 5 U/L

    I’m doing Fierce 5 Upper Lower and I feel like I can progress faster than what the routine is calling for.

    I was thinking of instead of increasing upper body lifts by 5lbs and lower body lifts by 10lbs every 2 weeks, I could try increasing by the same amount every 1 week. When I start to stall, I could go back to the routines planned progression.

    I love the routine and everything else has been working great but I’d really like to try this out as I feel as though I can handle it, at least for now.

    Here are my lifts in case you’re wondering
    Bench: 200lbs 3x6
    Squat 265lbs 3x6
    Deadlift: 335lbs 3x5
    OHP: 125lbs 3x5

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    The novice progression on the inter u/l is fine 👍

    How long have you been lifting for? If you're able to add weight every week, you're arguably still a novice lifter (despite being significantly stronger than me). As per what Ego said, you could go either way. If you are still relatively new to lifting, the faster progression is probably the better choice.

    That’s exactly what I did coming off a lay off a long time ago. Worked great.
