When the season starts we drop the metcon, add a couple of other lifts and stick with the 2x5, 1x5+ rep range. We do move onto a different rep range as the season continues and it takes longer to recover from our games.

The guys love the 5+ set. It becomes a little main event in itself.

A couple years later I still think it's a very solid novice program.

I have a couple neighbors who lift with me and I keep their programming pretty close to a GSLP format. I always end upper body stuff with a 5+ set. It's fun, keeps them focused, and makes resets more enjoyable. I don't use the + sets for deadlift and often not for squats either because I don't want them putting their back or anything else at risk doing ugly *** reps just to hit a rep goal. If you're policing all those + sets this might not be a problem, but I'm lifting too so don't watch everything.
