BBB Challenge

Thinking of running 3 cycles of 5/3/1 after my rest week, using this variation on the Boring But Big assistance work.  Basically, assistance exercises are swapped (Bench is assisted with Press, Press with Bench, Squat with Deadlift, and Deadlift with Squat), and the assistance percentage is stepped up 10% in each of the three cycles.  Further, the peak set of each day is stopped at the minimum rep number, rather than failure or "just short of failure".  Since I often have trouble discerning the former from the latter, and the former tends to burn me out, the scheme has a lot of appeal on that basis alone.
