Hey guys I got a question about 5/3/1 and acceptable assistance work volume.
My current days for Bench and Press days are as follows:
Bench Press 5/3/1
Bench Press 5x8,10, or pyramid style
Kroc Rows 5x15
Military Press 5/3/1
Close Grip Bench Press or J.M. PRESS 5x8
Pull ups 5x10
Face Pulls 2x12-15
I like doing normal bench press on my bench days to keep my form lockrd in, and i feel J.M. press and close grips give me some good tricep work and teach me how to push from harder positions at the bottom. I’m kind of vain about my shoulders though, and am always trying to get bigger. Would i be okay adding 2 or 3 sets of dumbell presses after close grips on military and and adding some face pulls on my first day to compensate for the extra pressing, or do you think I’d be overdoing volume? Thanks!
