powercleans with chest on 5*5

im currently doing frankies 5*5, i do deadlifts on back and bi's, i really fell in love with the deadlift and frankie suggested to do power cleans instead of deads on the next 12 weeker. i was thinkin about keeping the deadlift and putting powercleans instead of shoulder presses on the chest and shoulder day.
What you think frankie or anyone that knows what they talkin about.
also i been doing deads on monday, then chest wendsday, and friday legs. i was thinkin about putting legs monday cause i heard it gives the test boost for the rest of the week? is that true

    I don't really see how that could be true... But I work legs on Mondays. That would be fine if your on a basic 3 day split 5x5 routine, just make sure you have push between pull and legs.

    if you like the deads keep them they are in my opinion the best way to increase mass and power in the upper body and glutes. many light and heavyweight powerlifters have excellent upper body structures purely from heavy pulling.
    i think power cleans on top may be to much for a natural bodybuilder. but power cleans are another excellent compound movement. why not just mix the two one week of each. it wont hurt and your dead wont suffer being worked every other week

    Miker:

    You don't want to do powercleans 48 hours after deadlifts as they work many of the same muscles. If you want to do them, do them on pull day.

    How do your test-making bits know what day of the week it is[?]

    Any day is the first day of the next seven days.

    GBL, it's because some people have this thing called "life", my friend. Its a weird consept. These people tend not to train over weekends - what they do, i wouldn't know, haven't tried. For me weekends are fantastic days to train, more rest, can go to the gym around noon which i find is the best time to train, can eat whenever i want and so on.

    I do my maximum effort deads/squats on sundays.
