Hey! I am looking for a new training method(program) for my bench. Let me share some history of what i have used.
#3yrs bench press in total
First 2,5yrs was basically BB training, ie many sets and reps. Did not get me far in terms of strength gains.
Anyway the First program i used was Smolov jr, and i added 33lbs on my bench in the 3weeks(this was 4 months ago)
Second program i used was MM2k, i think it stands for Muscle media 2k, just finished it and i got about 30lbs out of it which i am satisfied with.
So currently my bench is at 130kg=285lbs at a BW of 187lbs(height 5ft11. Even though i got out a lot of strength gains from the two programs i have used i no longer get newbie gains ie weekly gains.
I am now looking in to something new to try out, so any advice is appreciated. I have looked in to westside and that seems fine, although a bit tricky… =)
