Just do the program, Jack. It doesn't have to be complicatead to work. One strength of the 531 is that you can make long-term progress with it and you don't have to tinker with the fundamentals much. You'll get your high-rep days in. If anything, you might find yourself missing the heavy single or double for the first few cycles. Read the e-book. You'll get a chance to work that OCD when you start wondering how to fit assistance exercises into your already busy program.
