What is your assistance template like for the most part?[/quote]
haha… wrong person to ask. I suck when it comes to assistance work… I do a whole bunch of extra stuff just because I enjoy being in the gym… its my stress relief. Half the things I do aren’t necessarily productive either and very little stays consistent.
bench/overhead press days I do a bunch of chin/pull up variations, some sort of row(bb,db), and some type of press for triceps or push downs… that’s what stays consistent for the most part… anything else will vary from week to week.
On Squat days I do Olympic squats for assistance work, some good mornings, leg curls, ab work if I feel like it, and neck work… anything else will vary from week to week.
Deadlift days I do leg press, leg curls, couple sets of skater squats, shrugs, and grip work… anything else will vary from week to week.
when I say I do a lot of extra stuff… I’ve gotten up to 8 assistance exercises on some days. Believe me I know it sucks… But I enjoy it and it hasn’t damaged my main lifts so far.
