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.
This is sort of what's swimming around in my noggin at the moment for post-meet training:
Day 1 (Hard and heavy):
Bench Press (sling or shirt) - 6x2
2-3 Board Press - 3x2
Day 2 (Raw and higher rep, with shorter rest periods):
Bench Press - 3 x 10-12
Close Grip - 3 x 10-12
Day 3 (Mediumish):
Reverse Band Bench Press - 5x5
Reverse Band Close Grip - 3x5
A loose H/L/M across the week.
