so before I was doing 5x5 on bench but my friend recommended I do 3x10. I started doing it and and I like it a lot more. I also switched up my upper body routine like Mondays (bench, incline, lat pull down, deadlifts, and assited pull ups). Wednesday(bench, bicep curls, assisted dips, shoulder press, and dumbbell shrugs)
anyway back to my problem. on my last set I can’t do 10 reps at once. I am usually tired after my second set. 1st is 10x95 2nd is 10x105, 3rd is 10x115. I usually make it to around 5 straight than I rack the bar take a minute rest and attack it again and do the rest. the most I have done straight with 115 is 7 reps in a row. average I would take atleast 2 little 30 sec breaks during my last set.
is this good or bad. should I stop doing this.
also question about my lifts. I noticed on Thursday that I struggled a lot more on bench than I did on Tuesday. on Tuesday I did 7 reps in a row of 115lbs. than after the set I tested out my 1rmx and was able to do 135lbs. one Thursday I struggled a lot more with 4 reps of 115lbs. I took a total of like 3 breaks during my last set.
