I am following Westside For Skinny Bastards III and am on my 3rd week. Today was my 3rd week of Max Effort Upper Body and I struggled on my lift a little but I managed to get another PR. I am wondering if I need a de-load week next week or if I should change my max effort lift next week. Any suggestions?
Here is what my max effort lift numbers look like:
1st Week: Incline Dumbbell Bench Press - 40 x 5, 60 x 5, 70 x 5, 80 x 5, 85 x 5
2nd Week: Incline Dumbbell Bench Press - 40 x 5, 60 x 5m 75 x 5, 85 x 5, 90 x 2
3rd Week: Incline Dumbbell Bench Press - 50 x 3, 60 x 3, 70 x 3, 80 x 3, 90 x 3, 95 x 0
Should I de-load next week? I managed to set a new PR today by obtaining 3 reps on the 90lb dumbbells (last week I did 2 reps), however I was surprised that I couldn’t even get the 95lbs up. Or should I change up the max effort exercise for next week?
