Alright, so I started running SS again mid to late May after a pretty long hiatus. From then until now I’ve increased the squat in 5 pound increments every workout going from 95 to 205, deadlift in 10 pound increments 135 to 225, bench press in 5 pound increments from 75 to 125, press in 5 pound increments from 50 to 85 and the bent row from 75 to 125. I’m 6’1 and went from 164 lbs to 178 lbs, about 12% bf.
My squat stalled at 210 and so today I reset it to 175 and really focused on some of the finer points in the “so you think you can squat” series, it helped a lot. I’m past my old PR’s by about 10% give or take on all the lifts except for the DL.
My question is would be acceptable to add some light assistance work? I’d really like to add some work for the core, lower back and triceps. Not sure how to go about it though.
