Default Combin B.S. 5x5 with plyometric training

Hey guys, sorry to bother you again.

Is it OK to do one day plyometric and speed training once a week while on Bill Starr's 5x5 program? I read his program and he seems to be really against working out supplementary to the program, but i want to increase my speed and explosiveness for rugby. Is it ok to try this or should i wait till i finish the program?

cheers.

I would think it will all hinge on your recovery. For instance, If on day one you squat heavy, then on day two you try to do box jumps, or agility dots, or whatever, you may find yourself still sore and fatiqued.

Why not run the 5x5, get your strength up, then focus on plyos as you get closer to the season.
