From Beyond 5/3/1:
Although it is not written in the template, I always do some kind of pulling movement between the main sets (yes, even the squat and deadlift). This is usually chin–ups/pull-ups, T-Bar rows, face pulls, band pull-aparts or bent over lateral raises. Yeah, I know the last two aren’t technically “lat work” but they are movements that help to balance the shoulder girdle.
Anyone ever try something like this? I usually do pullups between sets of the main lift B/S/D/Press and was wondering if anyone else got good results with it on here.
Should I shoot for a total rep goal or keep them constant? Also, couldn’t the same thing be done with dips? (Not during Bench/OHP of course)
