Hey, whats up AM.
I am just starting Hatfield's program. For those of you who don't know it basically goes like this;
It calculates your weight for the upcoming days of the program by writing in your 1RM.
Day 1 is Bench/Squat, bench being the dominant core exercise of the day; 5 sets, 3 reps, then 3 overloads sets 120%. Squats are 5 sets, 2 reps.
Day 3 is just Deadlift day. 5 sets 3 reps.
Day 5 is Squat/Bench, squat dominent 5 sets 3 reps, bench 5 set 2 reps. Squat Overload 120%
... then it repeats and it changes a bit, adds more reps and weight fluctuates, etc.
Anyway, I have bands/knee wraps/wrist wraps/block... I was wondering what are the best assistance exercises to add into this program, where to place them, and how many sets and reps for best increases in my big three.
I was thinking; Romanian Deadlifts, Push Presses, Band Bench Press, Close Grip, Good mornings, Box Squats, Band Squats.... ETC.
BTW, this is my first power lifting program, I have been bb'ing for 5 years now. I am 5'9'', about 220lbs new to power lifting but did some research, got some gear and ready to get started!
