Agreed steve...but knowing what % of his 1rm he ramps up to could explain a little. If he is just adding 5 lbs per week but staying around 50% of his 1rm 3 times a week benching would not be as taxing as ramping up to 85-90% of your 1rm 3 times per week.
For instance monday could be bench focus day and you ramp to 85%. Then on wed and fri you just ramp it to 50%.
Wednesday could be DL focus and ramp to 85% with monday and fri only 50%.
Friday squat focus....
Just thinking if he is hitting each lift too extreme everyday recovery could really suffer.
