Looking for some tip on a training routine for my son, still has ea few years before he takes the test, but we are looking to train early to prepare for the 225# rep test on bench press. I have him doing 5x5 with 225 right now. Started out with about 3 minutes rest between each set, now down to less than 2 minutes rest. Hope to gradually take the rest out to get to 25 reps.
Do you think this will work or do you have other opinions. He also trains each major muscle once a week 5x5. He weighs 175 5 foot 10. Thanks.
