By doing this, over time, I bet that some unknown week areas will be shown and taken care off, and that new overall strength is won.
Thoughts on this?
When training for a powerlifting focus I definitely think that assistance moves should be hard to perform OR difficult moves. The reason for this is that you don't want your assistance to sap your strength and recovery time for the main lifts. Choosing difficult to perform exercises or ones that you hate, is definitely a good way to achieve this.
