So I wanted to get an idea of what my maxes currently are before i move forward into the next section of my programming prep for my first meet, which is happening in November.
I was a little frustrated with how my bench went today. I was hoping for 250, as i had a super smooth 235 last week. Turns out my bench is still fairly weak.
I would love some feedback, opinions, critiques, advice, whatever.
Especially from some of you that have struggled with bench but have brought it up.
I just finished the candito 6 week with some minor tweaks for the squat portion.
So for bench i have basically just been doing flat bench, close grip, dumbbell flies, incline dumbbell presses, and the some strict presses and push presses.
Even with benching 3x a week most weeks, i feel the volume has been very low.
Moving forward, i was thinking upping the volume, dropping back to twice a week, and doing more of a ME day and DE day, with a lot more direct tricep work. Again, if this sounds like an awful idea, please say so.
I understand the total is ultimately what matters, so the other thought was, maybe just kinda lower the intensity of the bench workouts, take what the training gives me come meet day, and really push my squat and dead in the next two months as those seem to be responding well to what i am doing.
I will be testing those tomorrow and uploading another video for your viewing pleasure or displeasure.
I think they will be 350 and 460 respectively. But then again, i could be off in that estimation.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
45, 115, 165, 190, 205, 220, 235, 245
