Hey guys, I've got a question and I hope you can help me out with it. My bench doesn't seem to wanna improve, I'm currently powerlifting using the WSB principle and my squat/deadlift are improving quite nice, bench just doesn't seem to response. So my question was what you guys would recommend me to do for bench, oh and before I forget to tell, I don't have bands/chains/boards.

I was thinking about this routine, but since I'm still quite a noob, I was wondering if there isn't anything else that should work, because I'm only powerlifting for 1,5 month, I think it should be possible for me to win more in 15 weeks than 22lbs.

1) 60% 4x6
2) 65% 4x6
3) 70% 5x5
4) 75% 5x5
5) 75% 5x5
6) 70% 6x6
7) 80% 5x3-2x2
8 ) 85% 5x3-2x2
9) /
10) 6 (80%) 5 (85%) 4 (85%) 3 (90%)
11) 5 (80%) 3 (90%) 2 (95%)
12) 4 (90%) 3 (95%)
13) 100% 2x1
14) /
15) 110% 1x1 (Test)

Please tell me what you think!

greetz,
Ron

If you're not trying to stay in a certain weight class, gaining weight helped my bench go up more than anything else. I tried all different kinds of routines, and honestly nothing out there is magic.

Get some bands.
What exactly are you doing for bench right now?
