    Gotcha

    I see, you've adapted the 531 program to work with a deload. Or there's another version. I don't have the program, but it's my understanding the traditional approach to 531 used distributed loading.

    Apples aren't oranges

    Do you try to stay away from overtraining like Wendler's 531, or do you take a few weeks to load up like PTTP and then deload for 1-2 weeks. Please don't mix match routines as many do without having...

    So you use the Distributed Loading protocol where you stay away from overtraining.
    This goes against what the Party preaches, but there are some here that use it, perhaps unknowingly.

    You would be trying to mix 2 different loading protocols.
    A common mistake.
    Pick either concentrated of distributed, as there is nothing similar between the two.
