Hello Mr. Wendler (or anyone else who answers). I am a high school lacrosse player entering my offseason. I’m 2 days into 531 and enjoying it so far. I wanted your opinion on what assistance template you would recommend for me. My goal is to build muscle and get a little leaner, and improve speed and power. Here’s my idea:
Sunday: Skill Work/Conditioning, Bench 5/3/1, FSL 5x5, Dave Tate Peridization Bible Assistance (DTPB) (as described in the book).
Monday: Sprints/Jumps/Throws, Power Clean 5/3/1 (minimum reps), 3 Joker sets, Squat 5/3/1, DTPB.
Wednesday: Skill Work/Conditioning, Press 5/3/1, FSL 5x5, DTPB.
Thursday: Sprints/Jumps/Throws, Power Snatch 5/3/1 (minimum reps), 3 Joker sets, Deadlift 5/3/1, DTPB.
So do you think this will work. Too much or too little volume? I took out the FSL 5x5 on squats and deadlifts cause I’m doing power cleans and snatches on that day with joker sets, so I figured it would be too much volume. Thanks for any help.
