Sorry for the delay, Robb. Congrats on the book.
My assistance work is particular to the season. During judo tourney season, I don't do any assistance work. In fact I do two lifts each on Mon and Thur and use Tue and Fri for conditioning (complexes, prowler work, sprints).
I've been preparing for a Highland Games this weekend. I've added an extra press and front squat in, and I've been doing pressing assistance. I spend the rest of my time throwing.
My plan from there was to prepare for strongman. But they just announced the events for Dallas (platinum plus), and the damn log clean and press for light weights is 290#. I'm out.
I'll probably go back to off-season judo 5/3/1, which is the big lifts plus some added pressing and minimal conditioning (I get a decent bit on the mat). I do some ring work in the summer because they're hanging by my swimming pool. Other than that, it's beer and hot dogs.
