So I do a full body 3x a week workout. The setup usually goes:
Olympic Lift or variant
Squat (back or front)
Press (Mostly ohp or push press)
2 Pulls (clean/snatch pulls, deadlift, rows, chins)
By the time I get to my core work I'm drained! I'm still making linear gains on my oly lifts, squats, and pulls off the floor. But my presses and rows have not gone up in 4 weeks.
Have any of you tried doing something along the lines of an "assistance work day" or something of that nature? I'm starting to feel like I'm getting to that point where I need more than just doing the main lifts for 3x5 or 4x8.
For example my OHP has been stuck at 130 3x5 @ 165lbs for 4 weeks. I'm feeling my core getting stronger, but I think I need to add some assistance work such as raises, cgbp, dips, etc). Instead of doing it at the end of a workout where I'm fatigued, I was thinking of just doing all my assistance work on 1 day. I'm so use to high frequency that it seems odd to just do something once per week. I like to keep things simple and not complicate it if I don't have to.
I just care about getting my Snatch and C&J up, but the assistance for those are mostly squats lol. So I need assistance exercises for my assistance exercises if that makes any sense lol.
Any advice would be helpful!
