I do an undulated full body workout 2-3 times/week. Every 6 weeks or so I change the exercises and than it becomes design 2, 3, etc. It’s undulated in the way I vary the reps for each body part through 3 workouts per design. So regardless of the chest exercises I may have 3x12 on monday, 5x3 on weds, and 3x8 on Friday.
Well when I set up the 1st design off this template in May I ended with a close grip incline bb bench for 165x8(10 was the goal). Today on the 3rd design of this template I put in wide grip incline BB bench press and 155x3 felt heavy so I dropped down to 145 and did 4 more sets of 3 reps. On the second design I had incline db presses which went up so I expected to be stronger on the 3rd design when I went back to the bb version, especially with a wider grip.
Any ideas why it would’ve went down? It should be noted that I did take adequate time to recoop between designs.
