If you feel shit on the day you can always drop it back to 2.5, but personally I think 2.5 is a little too conservative if you're following the programme as it's laid out.

Its fun at times i started the 100 days 100 push up challenge and managed to do it till day 48 , that was some badass workout very fun to do and i manage some decent chest strength as in i could do upto 37 push ups at once which is pretty cool for me , but i wasnt doing any other workout with it .

Just think of it as a wee break for your body, then when you get back into the heavy stuff you'll be ready to knock down doors mate!

hey there :) cheerssss, shame Kg doesn't sound as heavy as pounds :p

So I've just ordered a 145Kg olympic barbell, was going to wait till the summer but I spoke to some sales advisors that had put the barbell almost at half price for a boxing day sale... stoked!
This means when I start 5/3/1 I can do my deadlift/military press days at home, I'm also getting some squat stands and a bench next pay day, not to mention I have a pullup bar at home everythings magic ;)

anyone that's really familiar with wendlers 5/3/1 wanna clear something up for me?
for assistance exercises I was thinking of sticking to 4 sets 8-10 reps, this would include: dips, chins, curls, tri extensions, lunges etc. wendler does say it doesn't really matter and not to dwell too much on assistance but I feel I should have some idea of what I'll do.
