I started the texas method about 5 weeks ago...
Originally my routine was:
Military press 3 sets ramping up to one heavy set of 5
RDL's - light 2x8
Lunges - medium 2x8
Good mornings - light 2x8
Bench 2 RM
Squat 3 RM
Rows 5 RM
I changed this two weeks ago because I stalled on 285 squats on the 5x5...I think two times a week was just too much with all of those sets. I swapped in deadlifts on friday instead for the last two weeks up to 440 pounds. Well yesterday I jumped all the way up to 300 pounds on squats for all 5 sets. However, my bench has now stalled...i went from easily getting 235 last week to barely making it through 3 sets at 240...only got 3 reps the last 2 sets. I am thinking its just too much volume with the 5 sets, the press on Wednesday, then the 2RM on Friday. I was thinking of taking away the bench from Monday and replacing it with 5x5 of military press, as I have never trained them with the same intensity/volume as bench...Friday will still be the 2 RM bench however.
Would military press contribute to my overall physique more than bench?
