    Goal: 315lb raw bench

    I lift for hypertrophy but at the same time use PL technique to increase my bench. I just got back from a whole week break from the gym and want to try another routine. I been reading Vincent Dizenzo's 600lb raw bench program (http://www.elitefts.com/documents/600lb_raw_bench.htm) and wanted to see if it applies to the 300lb club (booo). I remember following this routine at one point a year ago but things happened back then and now I'm back ready to hammer the weights

    edit: forgot to add that my training days are T/W/Th. I can sneak in DE/accessory workouts on the weekends after work. But FYI I get real tired/sleepy/lazy after my working days due to my job so I usually don't lift at full capacity or have the mindset to.

    Of course it'd apply to someone chasing a 300 lb bench. You don't have to be chasing 600 raw to use that routine, haha

    Aren't we all chasing 600 raw (with a few exceptions on this board)? I've only got a little over 200 lbs to go

    I've been using a routine fairly close to this and it has helped my bench tremendously.

    DE/ME days are 3 days apart. How would I go about training 3 consecutive days?

    What is your question exactly?

    If it's how to increase your bench, where do you fail when benching? What have you been doing (related exercises, reps and sets)?

    I don't quite understand your question. DE and ME are two separate days. You would do one on Monday and the other on Thursday, or any other days that are 3 days apart. I do my ME day on Friday and my DE day on Monday.

    Ok, I think I see what you are asking. I just reread that you normally train on T/W/Th with the possibility of fitting in a day on the weekend. I personally think that Tuesday and Thursday are too close together for you to have 2 bench days. Your best bet is going to be to do your ME work on Wednesday and DE on Saturday if you can.

    thats what i figured.

    lets see if this layout will work?...

    off
    T - ME Bench
    off
    Th- Deadlift/shrugs/abs
    F - DE Bench
    off
    Su- Legs/abs


    All my SQ sessions are light due to my health conditions. Therefore deadlifting and squatting the same day would be killing it.

    That looks good to me. It's a good program. It really worked well for me. I have tweaked it a bit to break 600. I'm going to be working on an article outlining the new routine.
