I just finished my first week of 5/3/1 with BBB assistance. I think it’s great and definitely want to continue with it for as long as possible. I saw on a couple forums that some people said to switch assistance every few months. Is that recommended, or should I just stick with BBB?
Also, I want to add in some light cardio for health reasons (partly because my heart has been randomly beating really fast for no reason this past week and it’s weirding me out). Would that be best done after every workout, or just upperbody days, or what? I was thinking maybe 10 minutes on the elliptical just to keep my conditioning from getting too bad.
I was hesitant to do it because I have a hard time gaining weight as it is, but I want to stay healthy. I would do prowlers/sled stuff, but they don’t have that at my gym. And just some background info in case it matters, I weight 170 with 7.3%bf and my maxes are (approx.) bench: 180 squat: 280 deadlift: 400.
