I'm sure he would have done some accessory work and quite frankly if we consider who wrote this I wouldn't be surprised if it was abbreviated to fit more in line with the Dino philosophy and whatever strawman he was trying to knock over at the time But I digress!

I'm inclined to believe the 5 doubles or 5 singles approach as that was typical of the Oly lifters at the time such as Stanko and the York lot. Hepburn had an epiphany and soon after raised the bar doing upto 10 singles which was his *magic formula* as he put it in his biography.
I've yet to read Dino training and wasn't aware that it was a bit dogmatic.

It's interesting how this frequent style of training has gone the way of the dinosaur, no pun intended. I have never personally researched how powerlifting and strength sports moved away from approaches like this to the once a week per big lift that became so popular. I'm not sure if powerlifting followed the path of bodybuilding, not how much of it has to do with drug use.
