Hey everyone, im a non-competative RAW powerlifter, currently 5'11 210, and am buillding my way to 220. In addition I want to hit a 300lb bench. My goals are not purely strength numbers, but I have done pretty well all around just focusing on getting stronger.
As for bench, i tend to be weakest off the chest, or about 3 inches off. Here is my current general setup....
week 1 CG bench to a 1RM
week 2 Floor press with pause to 1RM
week 3 foam press to a 1RM
DE/RE work 50-70% with or w/o bands 8x3
Bench practice low reps
incline db bench
Ok so my questions....
1) Should I be pausing on my ME, assistance, both or neither?
2) When doing ME, should I aim for a total number of reps above 90% for the day?
what i mean by this, for example some on my floor press workout my warmups to a max were:
And that was it.
3) For ME work, do I want to pick exercises that im weaker at than bench or stronger, or both?
Thats all I can think of for now, but any other advice? Im sure just gaining weight will help get me closer to 300.
