Default Hatch squat program + ?

Okay, my pins need some work so I am going to give the Hatch Squat program a swing. I would like to do more than just squat, but from what I gather I will be done in when I am done. So would doing push press or pull ups or maybe dips be to much on squat days?

You can definitely do more than just squat - just not a ton more. Keep deadlifting/pulling relatively light and infrequent, but go ahead and press/push press as much as you want. If you're doing the oly lifts, best to keep them 60-70% or so for singles and doubles. Take the time to do a lot of light technique work. The program works very well - as long as you're allowing yourself to recover adequately.

I know this may be an older topic, but I just started this program after doing 5x5 for so long. Anyways, Im assuming only squats and maybe one upper body push exercise could be done on those days correct? What about the oly lift movements on other days(say squat mon, fri; clean wed, sat)?

I did push press and pull ups on leg days. The other days Clean and Snatch. I kept it somehwhat light. It sure helped my squat, but man you have to have focus for it.

Now I see why this program really is a pain in the ass. Top set was 285x6 today for week three(my theoretical max is 335). Believe it or not I think its working rather well!!!!
