Week 1 - work up in 5’s starting at 50% until you miss reps
Week 2 - work up in 3’s starting at 50% until you miss reps
Week 3 - work up in 2’s starting at 50% until you miss reps
Week 4 - work up to 50% for 3x8
Easy 4 week cycle that put some big numbers on my lifts. If you are able, only use 45/25/10lb plates. No more than a 30lb jump between sets. Stop once you miss the required reps.
Example: 300lb bencher - warmup-45x10 95x10 135x5 start worksets-155x5 185x5 205x5 225x5 245x5 275x3(miss last two reps)
No thinking and basically no percentages. Just go in, bust it out and leave. Good way to get in some volume and heavy weight while still be autoregulating to how you feel that day.
