    Not counting other chest crap I do.


    135x10
    185x10
    225x5
    235x5
    245x5
    265x5
    275x1
    285x1
    295x1 (I think i had 10lbs left but I had no one trust worthy of a spot)
    225x10
    225x8

    So basically I like to keep my volume of bench press up rather than putting in other supplemental movements. I've been doing that for squat and dead also and have been seeing gains.

    So I do a 5x5 and where my 5rm would be I turn to singles and then to singles for a near max. Then drop the weight back down for more volume.

    Am I gay?

    howso? strength or endurance or growing a sexy chest?

    my guess would be endurance. :/

    do you always do the dropsets? if you train chest more than once a week, why dont you try doing the first part one day, then the max rep sets the 2nd?

    my 1rm has been going up.

    I just about always do drop sets. Id rather to more lighter volume on flat bench than waste it on flys or decline.
