Hey what's up guys I decided to start a journal to help keep me focused and dedicated to my training. I'm trying out for the Rowan University football team in the spring so making the team and becoming more athletic is my main focus. Right now I'm 20 years old, 5'8, and 180 lbs and pretty lean. I have been lifting with a football / strength focus since freshman year of high school, so in total i have about 6 years of lifting expierience. My max lifts are 245 bench, 315 x 5 squat, 350 x 1 deadlift, and 205 x 8 hangclean. My training is set up like this :

Mon- ME Upper Body
Tues- Speed / Plyo Work
Wed - off
Thurs- Repetition Upper Body
Friday- M.E. Lower Body / Gpp
Saturday- Conditioning
Sunday- off

Any words of encouragement, comments, questions, or advise is always appreciated. Thanks for checking out my journal.

-Some static stretching
- dynamic warmup
- rb / ball handling drills
-sprints: 5 x 10 yds
-5 x 20 yds
-5 x 40 yds (pulled my hamstring on my very last 40)

- Good workout up until the pulled hammy.

For your bench try adding in a set of 5 after your last heavy single :)

Should i add in a max set of 5? Or should I just focus on getting 5 clean reps with the ability to have 1 or 2 more left in the tank?

You could also change your warm-ups to look like this:



Hope this helps.

Yeah just a clean set of 5, maybe leave just one in the tank.
Try to slowly build it up.
