Assistance Work In 5/3/1 for Hardgainers


#1
  • List itemIn the 5/3/1 for hard gainers, how does the assistance sets fall in? In between the main lift sets or after the main lift sets are completed?

#2

Usually it's done after the warm-up, jumps/throws, main work and supplemental.


#3

But in the article you talk about supersetting it. I am supersetting my pull assistance with my press/bench main&supplemental lifts... so im a bit confused. Am i supposed to do anotjer 50 - 100 reps of pull assistance on top of that or do the 100 chins in between the bench sets count as my 100 pull assistance reps?

Thanks
