No, and I’ve never heard of anyone else doing it, via this website or other websites… even one geared pretty much specifically towards DC-trainees and philosophies.
I think part of the reason you haven’t is because any time anyone mentions doing any accessory template that isn’t 100% to the t what Wendler has outlined in one of his recommended templates, 8,000 fan boys will jump on their balls.
This is ironic, because I’ve personally read the book and I was always completely under the impression that 5/3/1 was merely the template on the big 4 lifts, and that Wendler himself made it very clear that you could “accessorize” how ever you see fit. I saw the templates he provided as kind of a bonus if the reader was having trouble figuring out how to piece it all together, so he gave them a place to start. [/quote]
Eh, not so much. More to do with “not overly fucking with DC” more than fucking with 5/3/1 to any capacity.
I think that Wendler’s 5/3/1 is great for people who can consistently do big lifts, which isn’t me, so I haven’t paid much attention to it beyond a short stint last summer where I had some success.
That being said, I frequent another site, again, catered mostly to DC dogma, and have not seen this come up once.[/quote]
Ah, I see. More the DC side of things. Yea. OP should just do DC. [/quote]
Wendler’s pretty sensible, seems like he has some outstanding insight into most aspects of lifting. If there’s something written in the book like you mentioned, I’m sure it’s good stuff.
I know I was stupid and bullheaded, and ended up doing wayyyyyy too much assistance work when running 5/3/1 as well. Which is why I just personally couldn’t recommend the hybrid, based on my own experience and anecdotes. Based on some what others mentioned above, sounds pretty reasonable, given the RP stuff wasn’t utilized too excessively.
Good luck, OP!
