Have you ever tried speed benching? What about ballistic benching? Ballistic is where you do your speed reps as per usual but turn the bar around BEFORE it hits your chest. My shoulder has been too beat up to do this for a while but had some success with it before Christmas. Helps me stop sinking the bar into my chest and improving the stretch reflex.

Varying the volume to me isn't as important as adding volume, so yes, I could work variations. I have 2 primary goals:

1) More volume at 85% ish.
2) A defined progression approach.

I need to know I am making progress with this system. So whether it be a rep goal system, or whatever I choose, it must have work where I am pushing things and can compare workouts for progress. I have ideas in my head right now and will share them in a bit.

I certainly can work variations with this.
