so since june i’ve been doing block periodization. the first cycle i skipped realization because i was training for a meet that i did two weeks ago. My training for deadlift and bench went amazing. especially bench, my pr from april on bench was 300 and my last week of training I smoked it so i was confident in getting a 315-330 bench at the meet.
my opener at the meet was 295 and it looked like absolutely nothing. next attempt took 315 and it flew off my chest but instantly became dead weight at about where is 2 board is, and i mean it wouldn’t budge at all. I already can foresee what everyone is gonna say. “do more 2 board work” i know that might help out but i think it cant be as simplistic as that. its always been my sticking point.
currently my heavy bench day is monday and then i cut the volume in half for whatever percentage im using that week and do that on thursdays. i was thinking about adding in more heavy 2 board presses into my thursdays since theres already less work load.im just trying to also get some insight from everyone else on what helped them break through that sticking point. Thanks and i appreciate any input.
