    No, you don't have to stop doing those movements. But you might notice a decrease in size from the cutting.

    Your welcome! I understand, but remember, sometimes less is more.

    While not a popular program here, many of us do follow it. How can it not be enough? 5/3/1 is pretty much just the rep schemes for the main lifts. You can do whatever the fuck else you want to do.

    Cary put it more eloquently than I. Just would add, to do it justice 3-4 cycles would be more appropriate to see appreciable gains.

    I know nothing about nothing, except I started 5,3,1 this week. I was actually quite surprised at how much of a workout it actually is. I'm doing the main lift and 2 accessory lifts and I'm fairly wrecked when I leave the gym
