    Benching for power

    I'm still going to train legs and all other bodyparts in a normal bodybuilders rep scheme, but I would like to bench like a powerlifter.

    What rep/set scheme works best for increasing bench? Also, when benching for power, should you sacrifice form to move more weight?

    thanks

    I'll leave you to find out what rep sceme's work for you.
    The only time you should sacrifice form to move more weight is in a meet.
    Best Meet @ Lifts@181:...............Best gym lifts
    Squat...- 403..........................Squat....- 395 w/belt
    Bench...- 303..........................Bench....- 300....Paused in meet - 281
    Deadlift.- 503.....Unofficial 513...Deadlift..- 490
    Total....- 1,203...IPF Class II......All done raw, Touch'n go bench
