I’ve decided to try Heavy Prowler pushes for assistance on Squat and Deadlift days instead of doing the FSL work. I will still be doing FSL work on Press days. I have a history of a severe low back injury that flares up when I do too much volume with Squats and Deads. I am also going on 54 years old. After re-reading Beyond I remember where Wendler suggests Heavy Prowler in place of volume work for those with back or knee issues. I did this a few years back and made good progress by just using 5s Pro and PR sets. I will be doing 6 pushes with increasing loads. Example; 2x40 with 90 lbs, 2x40 with 180 lbs, 2x40 with 270 lbs.
My question; I know we are supposed to reduce assistance volume in the anchor phase, but I was wondering what the opinion on this would be with the heavy Prowler? Should I reduce the volume? Keep the volume and reduce the weight? Or just keep it the same since it doesn’t impact me in the same way and it’s easier to recover from than the FSL work?
