    Better for Strength

    Hey guys, I just read an article on Periodization. I was wondering which is better for increasing the bench press. A periodization routine ( like 8 weeks of 3*10, 8 of 3*5-7, and 5 at 3*3) or just heavy training (like 3*5 or maybe 3*3). Thank you.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    For single rep strength you must perform sets of 1,2,or 3 reps. This along with other factors will give you better strength.

    Try using "wave" periodization-- cycle the numbers every few weeks.
