Never used beyond failure or anything. I almost never use spotters so its not to failure because I usually put the bar up when I feel I can't get 1 more rep. No drops or anything special. I did 3 sets of flat bench, 3 sets on incline, 2 burnouts on incline and flat dumbbell press. Sometimes I would throw in some cables.
I think maybe I was doing too much because in the bench I would go heavy on every set with a warm up set before hand to get the blood pumping. I worked whereas I would need around 3:30 minutes to recover and do another set. But I'm trying to get my plan ready for when football is over. Today I maxed out at 355 lbs. Which I think is weak compared to what I could've possibly done had I not hurt my shoulder during a game.
Everyone there was astounded but I knew I could've broke 400 easy. I used to bench press 245-10 times, but when I injured my shoulder, I fell back and only did light weights until it healed. Back then when I was weaker, I could only bench 225 11 times and still got 350, but after football that's when the real training kicks in because then there won't be any injuries holding me back.
