My max bench right now is 235 for one rep. I want to be able to do 225 for a 5x5 program but I also can do 225 for only one rep. Do you suggest that I
A) increase my max because that will increase my reps on lower weight
B)keep using 225 but try for 2 reps next time
C)Do a 5x5 with a lower weight but increase each time you lift
This applies to all of my lifts.
I can max out at 315 on the squat for 1 rep. However, I can only do one rep for the weights 305 and 295. Which option should i chose to increase the amount of reps I can do.
