    Jim Wendler's 5 3 1 Bodybuilding assistance work that is not BBB

    (BESIDES SAYING i should do 5x5 or starting strength or neither or some other program) What would you say should change about the assistance work of this 5 3 1 template to make it more balanced for bodybuilding.
    I added calf raises on leg day instead of leg extensions for calves and changed the tricep push down to overhead tricep extensions on chest day to hit the long head of the tricep more.

    DB Military Press 4 x12

    Day 2: Back

    Bent Over Rows 4 x12
    Chin ups 4 x10 (or do Lat Pulldowns)
    Good Mornings 4 x10
    Hanging Leg Raises 4 x12

    Bench Press 5/3/1

    You have to customize it for yourself, especially if your goals are bodybuilding oriented. Find days to work your weaknesses, and make sure you have enough rest between like groups.

    I will say though that it looks like you have too many exercises. I'd say you want your core lifts and 2 accessories each day, maybe 3 if you can superset a few of them.

    i completely agree. The volume is a little much and there have been a few days where i cut down to two sets instead of 4 on some of the accessory work. Thanks for the response
