    Accessory bench and overhead : kroc rows, barbell rows, weighted chins, lat pulldown, face pulls, DB raises, rear delt flye, pendlay rows, weighted dips, DB bench, incline DB bench, pushups, close grip bench, Jm press, pushdowns ect.

    Squat and deadlift accessory: good mornings, rdl's, leg press, lunges, leg ext, leg curl, front squats, pause squats, reverse hypers, calf raises /press.

    ABS. -pick em

    Your choices are endless really. Pick lifts that contribute to the overall improvent of your core lift. I like to work in planes ex) vertical push/pull. Horizontal push/pull.

    You say you've read all you can find, but the question on everyone's mind is: have you found the book?

    He answers all questions about assistance and countless other things in the book. If you really wanted to avoid buying the book, I'd suggest reading logs upon logs. Or you could find your own assistance path by finding out which muscle groups are most important for pushing up your lifts. (Here's a secret: Your upper back and abdominals are the most universally important groups.) Doing your own assistance requires dilligence and an intimate understanding of your weaknesses. I have a hard time with it myself.

    Just don't add all kinds of crazy barbell complexes or "arm day" . Avoid bastardizing it and let it work as Mr wendler intended..

    I could read Wendler all day long. Only problem is I'd probably start talking like him and offend everyone I deal with.

    depends on your goals. many of the accessory templates can be found online that will tell you how many reps, sets, etc. which exercises depends on your weak links. if you are not sure just do the main lift again.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.
