    bench max

    whats up bros,

    I understand you probably get questions similar to this often but i just wanted to see if i could get some help from different angles on this one. Right now i do a bench press work out of (12x135 10x185)warmup sets (10x225 5x275 1x315)work sets (225xmax)burnout. My goal is by august 2005 to press 405. I was wondering if anyone had any input on a program that would help or if i am on the right track.

    You want strenght!!! Have you ever heard of sheiko? Sheiko is one of the best strenght building programs ive seen.. I have never done it my self, but i have seen other people getting great results with it..

    Do you know sheiko?

    It's a russian powerliftning program made by Boris Sheiko... It's a five week cyclus, but it involves benchpress, deadlift and squat... But i guess you can drop deadlift and squat if you are going for the benchpress... Do you want to know more about it...

    Here are some rules you have to follow if you want to be strong:
    Don't go to failure
    Train explosive

    When you wanna be good at something do it and do it often... train benchpress 3 times a week... But failure is not an option... You are going to kill you self by doing it...

    Strength train.
    Use >85% of 1RM
    Use a 6,4,2 rep scheme
    Organize a strucutre periodization and peak the time you want to be your strongest.

    It just means that there are less good things about failure(if there are any good thing about it) than bad....

    There is a link to some powerlifting programs and sheiko is there too...

    Strength can be done by low reps higher then normal weight. 70-90% 1RM 1-6 reps only.

    NO SHIAT!111 That's a lot of weight. I'm 6'3 and 190 right now. My best bench ever was 280 when I was five pounds heavier. It went up real slow, but I locked it out. I can't wait to recover from my shoulder injuries. If at all. I'm all depressed now.
    ;-;<--- crying.
    Totally off subject, but I clean and pressed 185 today.
