Re: 5/3/1 and Front Squats

If you are switching, I'd drop the weight a lot more than just 10#. Basically reboot your back squat. I ended up tweaking my back when I switched to LBBS because I didn't adjust the weight.

When I was 531, I just added another day of FS and GM. I was doing a simple template so no real barbell assistance since I was already doing lots of gymnastics stuff as the primary program (though I eventually added in weighted dips and pullups).

Re: 5/3/1 and Front Squats

Honestly, I would just switch out deadlifts for front squats. You should be getting a lot of deadlifting in with your snatches and cleans you do. They may be slightly different from power lifting deadlifts, but deadlifts none the less. If you really insist on deads maybe add them in as an accessory as snatch grip deads and clean pulls.
