Default When to implement boards

Being a Raw lifter, i want to implement the two and three board correctly to get the most out of them. What ramp up scheme would you suggest?

For example this is what i did yesterday, only had my two board.

315x5
365x1
Added two board
400x2
440xmiss

Now in my thinking today, i believe i jumped too high...probably should have went 425,430,440 for the boards. Anyways, I've racked my brain all yesterday and last nite. So i am looking to my MAB family for some help! Thanks guys and gals!

Well SB from my personal use over the last couple months I found after your initial warm-ups to go straight to a three board and work up to a heavy weight then drop down to a lower board. Doing it this way I found I can use more weight on the lower board cause your body has already handled heavier weight on the previous board. Has lead me to many PR's.

Try this SB. Do your raw work. Then do your first set with the last weight you did your raw work with. Then I would suggest smaller jumps until you miss your rep range. Something like this:

Last set raw was 365x3.
add 2 board
365x3
385x3
405x3
then maybe 10 pound jumps until you miss a triple.

Also if you use multiple boards in one workout, then start with the lower board and then go higher. Example, raw, 2brd, 3 brd etc.

This is how Sebastian Burns and Andy bolton had me do it so I am not pulling it out of my butt!

Heres a session I did in 2010 when Andy was prepping me for a meet to give you an idea:

paused bench
135x8
185x5
225x5
275x3
300x3
315x3
335x3
355x3

3 brd
340x3
350x3
360x3
375x3
390x3 (a little help on third)

hanging bands
365x3
405x3
425x3
440x3
455x1 (missed second)

shoulder press
145 3x15

bent over laterals 40 3x12
