On the 13th of august i have a type of mini combine at my HS, the scores of which will be sent to my prospective college coaches. My problem is im not so sure how to work up to my max, or even how to work up during my ME workout day. For bench ive never done more than 225. Today for instance i did: barx10, 95x5, 135x5, 165x5, 185x3, 195x3, 205x3, 215x1, then i failed at 225. Im not really sure what happened. I even failed the first time at 215, but then i got it. How can that be? I got 3 at 205 without much difficulty, how could 225 be so hard? Any thoughts on the best way to prep myself to get the most out of ME movement?
The same thing happenes with my squat. on mon i did 135x5, 225x3, 275x3, 315x3, 345x3 with a little difficulty, then couldnt even get 365. Again that just doesnt seem right? Any thoughts on my current situation?
