Chins Between Sets Count Towards Assistance Work Totals?


Been doing roughly 50 Chins between sets on my main work (5’s Pro + BBB). Should I count this towards my 25-50 pull reps goal for assistance? Pretty sure that it does count just want to be sure, I enjoy upper back training so if I can do more that’d be cool.

Thanks, JayMdws




You can always add some extra low stress upper back work. I always do that. If I was doing 50 chins for the day, I usually add face pulls or pull aparts or maybe some feet elevated inverted rows.
