I need some clarification. I have been doing this:
Bench press 5x5
calf raises 3x10
Overhead press 3x3
DB incline flys 3x3
front raises 2x10
lateral raises 2x10
Bench press 1x1
Is this considered a proper way to do the Texas Method or no? I am struggling trying to fit all of my regular exercises in to this. It seems to be working, but I just wanted to check.

Wednesday is almost all iso work and it's practically all shoulders.....why do you need to do that much shoulder work?
You're also really only working your back on Friday.

Read the sticky on the BB page. It goes quite deeply into TM.

Try this, It's what I have eben doing for the past eight weeks and have Increased my bench by 5lbs almost every week other than two.
Bench Press: 5x5 w/ 80%
Free Motion Pec Dec (not the restrictive one) 5x5 @ 80%
Dips 5x5 with 15 - 20lb weights
Bench Press 5x5 w/ 80% of 80%
Pull ups 3x5
Bent Over Rows 3x5 @ 80%
try to swim 100 yards cause its recovery day and swimming will loosen everything up and get the blood flowing
Ramp up to one rep max on bench press
Im not saying this is a proper workout plan due to some groups possibly being imbalance cause I did come up with it myself. Im sure there is more balanced and efficent ways cause im not a fitness programer.... But it fuggin works...Try it
Could be cause Im a little less than intermediate lifter and just the consiestancy + types of lifts is working for me and my body i guess..
Whatever the case...5lbs a week to the bar is nothing to re-examine lol... id say
