    Critique my ME bench day

    I'm doing Defranco's Westside for skinny bastards routine. Heres what I did for bench today. Monday is my upper with max effort bench day. Last week I didn't work back down after doing 170, but I did today just to see what it would be like.

    Set Weight Reps
    1 130 8
    2 150 8
    3 160 6
    4 170 4(f)
    5 160 3(f)
    6 150 6(f)
    7 130 8(f)

    I'm guessing I shouldn't work back down like that, seems like too much volume (43 total reps). I guess if the first 4 sets don't seem like I'm working up to that 3-5 rep max correctly I need help on figuring how much weight/how many reps I should do before hitting my 3-5 rep max.

    http://www.defrancostraining.com/art...s_westside.htm

    Its about 1/3 of the way down the page. It says to work up to a 3-5 rep max set.
