Well since starting a 3x a week bench/chest workout my bench is improving. I did chest Thursday of last week, I got 155 for one. I worked chest Friday, 3x3x135. On Monday I did 3x3x135, 3x145 and 3x155. Then today I did 3x3x135, 3x145, 3x155 and finally 3x165. I felt like I could probably hit 170, or even 175 for 2-3 reps, but I didn't want to fatigue my CNS so I stopped there. I will try for 170x3 on Friday, then 175 on Monday.
While I'm pleased with my chest workouts, I feel my other body parts could benefit from this. Would it be okay to hit legs, shoulders, bi/tri in this manner too? I mean honestly, I haven't had gains like this in a long time, and while I don't want to jinx myself, I can only hope they continue all the way up to a decent bench for my size, ie 255 atleast. Let me know what you think as far as volume. The reason I think this is working is I never go to failure...reducing CNS stress and preventing overtraining.
