I am on week 2 of the workout I just posted above...I had to keep the squats light for the whole first week because of pain in my hip. However, my bench is still going up. Last monday I did 235 X 5 for 3 sets and then friday I did 250 x 3 for 2 sets. Now today I did 240 x 5 for 3 sets and it was not that difficult. I am believing this may be a good workout plan to complement the 30 lbs in 30 days program..however that remains to be seen. I will log my progress every now and again to let you know if I am still making gains. One thing I don't like is my wednesday workout...any ideas how can I modify it to better complement the monday/friday days? Is one day for biceps enough or should I try to mix them in on another day too?
Oh, and here is a drug-free lifter, my buddy, Justin Tooley benching in a drug tested meet after having used the program for 30 days:
What sort of percentages are you supposed to use with the squat and the deadlift?

Going To Give This A Shot, I Have Been Lifting For 2 Months And My Bench Jumped From 315 For 1 To 405 For 1, But I Have Been Stagnet So I Am Goign To Try This Routine.
You have only been lifting that long and have a 405 lbs bench? That is amazing! You must have some serious genetics for strength.
Hi, I am new to this forum but have been lifting for about a year now. I want to try this bench program, but i have one question. I could not find anything that specified rest times during sets. I would beileve that this is important, so how long of rests should you take between bench, and other exercieses?
Depending on your unique physiology you should take 1-3 minutes between working sets. I tend to be on the lower end of that spectrum for most sets.
So if I'm on this routine, I only squat once a month?

ok, ive been reading over the program and just trying to understand how it works and such. I am just wondering, isnt it missing some shoulder work or something. I understand this workout is to increase your bench press, but are the other body parts not being some what neglected like this? I am just wondering if some exercises can be susbstitued, or anything be added..like pulldowns, for pullups. And add like a military, or arnold press? OK thanks.
New poster here, saw the link to this program on another forum. My question is, do you run this cycle raw or shirted? Or does it not matter?
Not trying to put down your routine or anything but is there a specific reason why it's leg press on fridays? Can I do squats instead?
I don't like that routine, it might work for some but change usually does.
