I understand that the most annoying posts/threads are those asking about assistance templates however I've just bought and read the book and have decided to do my first cycle of 5/3/1.
My background in training involves basic barbell lifts using programs like Hepburn's "A routine" and Starting Strength. I have also spent a lot of time doing bodyweight movements, with programs such as convict conditioning and Charles Bronson's Solitary Fitness.
My goals are to increase strength in every aspect of the word so I'm eager to continue building up in my bodyweight movements and barbell movements while keeping my conditioning and mobility optimal. I know that sounds like a lot. A side-goal is to increase muscle mass, not too bothered about fat, though don't just want to be a fat powerlifter.
After my really long winded post, my question is, do you think using the North Of Vag "template" with the bodyweight assistance template will be optimal for achieving my goals?
And also, my gym has no access to a GHR machine, is there an exercise I can substitute this for? I've looked into "natural glute ham raises" using a slight push-up at the bottom and also cable/band pull throughs.
Thanks for your time in advance and sorry for the long winded post!
