My response is pretty dumb, but it keeps me consistent. I make 10% jumps, rarely ever going over 5 reps. A couple sets of 5 with the bar, 95lbs, 135 then I start making my jumps. Today, I was shooting for at least 300lbs on bench for a set of 5, so my sets were 30lbs jumps from 135 on up, 165, 195, 225, 255, 285 and I squeaked out 4 reps with 315. 315 was my 12th set and I was pretty warmed up by then. Oh, and I only do this on my first ME movement. I hope this helps, good luck [/quote]
How did you get 12 sets out of that?
I only counted ten.
My warm up sets for my meet last weekend went like this…
I did two sets at 95lbs and 135lbs. I did not however, jump from 255 to 385 then back down to 315. That would be sweet if I could, but not in this lifetime, lol
