If you’ve been doing 3 sets of 9-15 reps, go down and do sets with 1-6 reps like a powerlifting max effort day for a while, then on your other upperbody day pick a different exercise, like close grip/floor press/db bench and do your sets with 8-12 reps anywhere from 3-5 sets.[/quote]
Oh shit, I think there was something that was misunderstood.
When I said that I go for 3 heavy reps, aiming for 9-15 reps, I meant 9-15 reps in total!
Example : if I do 215 x 5,4,3 which is a total of 12 reps, I bring up the weight the following week by 5 pounds and aim for another 9-15 reps total distributed into 3 sets.
On a side note, I went to the gym earlier today. Nailed that 225 pound bench pretty easily, then followed with 185 lbs, for 8 reps (I’ve never done more than 5 reps with that weight).
