hey guys I’ve been running a routine for about 3 weeks now and I’m wonder if I should deload. I read that you should deload after 3 weeks of loading. My routine goes as follows
monday - close grip bench 5x5 at 185 , dips 5x5 at bw , second week 35lbs , third wk 40lbs
Wedneday - bench 5x5 at 205
friday - same thing as wednesday
this is how the routine started currently I’m doing 215 5x5 and close grip 5x5 at 195, if I go into another week i’d be doing 200 close grip etc (add 5 lbs on every lift).
I’m already experiencing strength gains estimated 1rm at 265 which I started with 245 etc. let me know what you guys think, just trying to train intelligently here.
