Also remember in the first week you are also trying to get an angle on what weights you will be wanting to use once you have settled in to the program. You will only really know that though at the end of the 3 sessions, you wil know then what needs to be upped and what you can keep as is.
I found that I started with bench at 50% thinking i would easily up it in the second week, but i couldnt get all 12 reps for three sets in the third session, the effect of shoulders before it has just killed it. Also remember there is 5 sets of dips that will smash the chest too. There is no need to overdo it on bench (or any other single movement tbh), cos then the dips will be affected and it the WHOLE workout you are trying to do in balance, not just one particular part of it. it all fits together really well and every move compliments and effects another...
You're gonna love it buddy
Dammit I wish I wasn't in work right now. I really want to get this thing started lol. I'll also be taking pics today for the M&S transformation challenge. Hopefully I can start dropping that 2 lbs a week which has been elluding me for several weeks now.
