Assistance Work, 5/3/1 Version 1.1

Theres two things I am pondering.

Should I change one of the deadlift days to a straight-leg deadlift or just add assistance hamstring work. I feel like my hamstrings are not getting enough love.

When you say assistance work doesn’t matter its assistance. So when you say 50 chin-ups and I do 10 reps, 10 reps, 10reps, 5reps, 5reps, 5reps, 5reps with 1min break in-between. Am I doing it right?

  1. No.
  2. You can’t do it wrong - just get it done.

I do SLDL after squats on squat day. 3 sets of 5.

If you’re not feeling your Hams on Deadlifts, you’re doing it wrong.
