What do you think is the best to improve my bench press.

1) ub/lb workout (WSB)
2) full body workout 3x(squat, bench etc)

Looking forward to hear some comments.

You are a 19 yr. old 200 lb'er hitting more then a 6xBW total...
I think you should just keep doing what you are doing!!
It seems to be working for you!
Dang Strong..

otherwise.. do a little searching.. this has been discussed many times on these forums...
In the end, you have to find out what works best for you...
experiment with everything...

I'm finding that a westside-style approach works very well.

Well thx, but my bench press is really lacking behind and I don't know if 1 ME and 1 DE workout with some assistance will improve my bench.

But when I'm doing bench press in a full body workout. I can bench 3 times a week. But the first exercise of my training will always be the squat. Maybe I should start with the bench press, cause the squat takes a lot of energy. Or the squat is an overall warming up for your muscles?

Thx, I will do some research on the wsb methode.

Yes I already follow some trainings of their program. The problem is there benching shirted and I don't bench shirted, cause my bench is to weak.

But I'm going to bench heavy twice a week (pin presses for stronger triceps) and I'm going to make some boards soon. I also do some push presses once a week, what may stronger my triceps.
