Some examples. Different philosophies, but they all work.

Re: strength training

Do some reading up on Wendler's blog, or preferably you should buy the 2nd edition e-book here (WFS). It says it's out of stock, but an e-book can't be out of stock. It'll answer everything you need to know about how many days a week to lift, what reps/percentages to do, how to structure your assistance work, etc.

If you don't know, then you are not ready to do 5-3-1. It's an advanced program (the cycle lasts 4 weeks), and people who do the program should know how many assistance lifts they need. Perhaps look at Starting Strength, another beginner program, or maybe an intermediate level program.
