To answer this, you need to determine your priority. I have been doing 5/3/1 for the better part of 4 years and have had good success, but my improvement really started in the last 12 months when I started to treat each 6-8 weeks as a block and decide what I wanted to focus on. While the 5/3/1 lift remained the same, my assistance work changed to match the focus. If your goal is to work on explosiveness, then program that in, but realize you need to minimize the assistance focused to other aspects. If your goal is size, then program that in but minimize the other aspects. It is a yin and yang thing.
