What's the point of the pushups? Do you need them for anything specific?

It's hard to tell anything regards to the 5x5 if you don't actually give us all the info. If we don't know what you're doing, how can we help? Sure, those 5 sets of 5 of good mornings before your assistance good mornings are a good idea.

You can say, I don't want to change the main exercises and we can look at it from there. But otherise, how can we give you any kind of input but blind information?

my goal is just to get stronger for football and I just enjoy doing pushups so i was just wondering sets/reps i should do?

but my main question is about the assistance work I changed for the program

ive already finished the regular 5x5 program so i just wanted to continue on it with my own modifications

previous to the 5x5 program i did the Mark Rippetoe program and decied to move to 5x5 from there
