I am wanting a bit more heavy volume on the lighter pressing day (at the moment its that "lighter pump" day) on Thursday, I want to try keep the 5x5 on bench day as long as I can. I am going to make an attempt at making a change to Pressing day. I still have LOADS to learn about programming, so tell me if its a bad idea, I will list my reasons for the changes too. Hopefully it makes sense and isnt rubbish haha.
So I thought I could alter Thursday, so instead of:-
Press 5 singles
I could try:-
Face Pulls or Rearward Shrugs 5x10
Reasons (Hopefully they are valid):-
1. I think it will be easier to recover from than the original one, this will hopefully allow me to stick to 5 singles and 5x5 on bench day for longer, as this day will add less stress over the week. So even though its still "heavy" doing 5x5, it will be easier to recover from, and hopefully mean my bench day can stay 5 singles + 5x5 for longer.
2. BTHP will hopefully create more shoulder balance, otherwise I will be doing a lot of front delt heavy lifts (bench press and overhead press).
3. CGBP will strength my triceps to help with bench press.
So let me know what your thoughts are
