    If you could do 300lbs X 5 on monday, do 305lbs X 3 on Friday. Then on the following monday, try 305lbs X 5

    With christophers routine can I swap the bench and the squat around?

    As my bench numbers are really down compared to my dead lifts.
    bench 90kg @ 4rpm
    squat 130kg @ 4rpm
    dead 140kg @ 3-4 rpm

    or is the purpouse of the whole routine to do squats twice?

    Your bench numbers should be atleast that much lower than your deadlift numbers.

    You get flat bench, incline bench, and dips or shoulder press all in one week...what more do you need?

    why? how much do you weigh?

    I can do them easily but i'm only 75kg.

    do pulldowns, bb row , db row hopefully then your strength will catch up to your weight and be able to do them easily.

    This is slighly getting off the topic tho.

    Do a lot of negatives, and pulldowns aren't a good substitute but they should help.

    All the reason to do more. Try assisted pullups until you can do unassisted ones without problems. That is what I am doing now.

    Pull down do help. I could't do any pullups 4 months ago. I could get about 5 in now. I know that's not alot at all, but that the most I've done ever.

    mostly the pullups, if you really care about your beach muscle (i know i do) just add preacher curls (or similar exercise). however u want to do them (i do 4 sets of 8 or something). and just be done with it.
