Yep, I think that's sensible. If you have anything left in week 2 it's really your last chance to completely fatigue everything before you get a week off. Due to programming of the routine the week off is actually about 9 days (Friday to next Monday for example) so you really should be completely *done* by the time your last session of week 2 ends.

I'm leaning towards keeping it specific, 6 more triples of regular grip benching. So something like this:

Week 1, Day 1: CGBP - 6 triples
Bench Press - 6 triples

Week 1, Day 4: Bench Press - 8 singles
CG 3 Boards - 6 triples

I don't think I'll differentiate much between the (heavy) weeks. I may reverse the order on Day 1 to do Benches first, followed by CGBP.
