Tuesday was my DE bench workout which consisted of speed bench and DB bench followed by tricep work. Will I be fine training ME Bench Friday (48 hours later)? I plan to go floor press (4 sets) and 3-board CG (lockout work).

youd be fine doing it once or so...just dont make it a habit. It will lead to overtraining if done on a regular basis...

DE on Tuesday and ME on Friday is 72 hours, not 48 like you are thinking. So you should be just fine.

I do DE on Tuesday and ME on Friday. I know I am only a special education teacher, but I swear that is 72 hours.

DO what you can.

If you can go through an entire westside cycle in 4 days do it. If you feel like you need rest than rest.

I have learned that rest days in programs are useless unless you need them.

you say 48 hours later, but if you bench on tuesday, you will have rested 3 times (tues.night,weds.night.thurs.night) before benching again on friday.
I don't know enough about DE and ME and how they effect muscles in training (different fiber types) so I will just pose it as a question instead.
If 3 days isn't enough recoop time for bench, is there enough difference between DE and ME to make a difference?
