What are assistance exercises

Assistance exercises are movements the help you get better at structural exercises. The main structural exercises are squat, deadlift, lunge, push, pull, and twist. For example: If you do an upper body workout that includes chest presses, rows, shoulder press and chin-up, a set of lateral raises may work well with this program. The lateral raises would strengthen your shoulders and help you perform the structural back row exercise better.
