5/3/1 Simple Strength, How Many "Pulling" Assistance Exercises?


#1

Hi,
I am following 5/3/1 SS template and I had a question regarding push, pull and leg exercises. If I am to do 50 - 100 reps of pulling, do I do just one pull exercise or better to divide it into back, biceps exercises?

Am I am overthinking on the assistance exercises? Thanks!

Just cover all your bases. Do rows one day, chins one day, curls one day and a different row or shrugs or something the other. If you’re doing like 100 reps of each then split it up between two if you want. Just make sure you’re getting the work in.
