No Assistance Work in Full Body Full Boring?

Good day,

Hoping everyone is staying healthy and safe. I’m looking just to confirm that the Full Body Full Boring template doesn’t include any assistance of any kind. Just the three main lifts, three days a week. Torn between this template and other full body templates within 531. Please and thank you.

I would suggest it depends on your goal.

I’ve run it with no programmed assistance before when I wanted to focus on conditioning while maintaining strength on the basics. The only lift to regress was press, because I wasn’t doing it but YMMV.

I’m most likely going to run the full body template from beyond. I’m big into running programs exactly as written. The full body involves lat exercises, and a standard OHP 531 . Never trained with a three day program before so I’m interested to see how this will benefit me .
