The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    DE assistance work -- how heavy?

    Should I use less assistance work after DE benching than I do after ME bench? I mean, it's 72 hours before ME bench, so it has occurred to me that doing too much assistance or going to heavy on assistance work could negatively effect my max effort work. Now and then I hear lifters say to go light on assistance work on DE day, or "cut down your rest time and go light" or something like that but nothing concrete really, and from reading the logs of some of the guys here I don't really see any of them toning it down a whole lot... Anyways, so for all the benchers out there, how much volume/how heavy do you go with your assistance work on DE day?
