Basically I am getting closer to my true max on 5x5 (I do 5x5 with the same weight then move up 2.5kg/5lbs next session), I’d say 2 or 3 more sessions on bench and I will be at my max.
Then, I want to work towards finding out my 1 rep max. SO I’ll have to drop the reps and start training lower reps, more sets.
I was thining of this… when I get to a weight that I cannot do 5x5 on, say I fail on the 3rd set, then switch to 10x3 on the same weight, then just keep increasing the weight 2.5kg each session.
Then when I cant do all 10 sets of 3, drop to 5x3, and keep increasing the weight 2.5kg still. Then when I cannot complete all 5 sets of 3, start training singles.
What are your thoughts on this, and how did you work from higher reps to your 1 rep max.
Just curious, my bench is going to be the first to stall, I think I have 120kg 5x5 in me at 77kg bodyweight, I did 112.5kg 5x5 bench with no problems, pretty easyish, just wanna keep progressing and not stall for too long.
Cheers in advance guys for any opinions
