When you go back to benching consider two things with the MM routine.
1.Bench once a week. I know the original routine has two days but those guys were doing most of their work in shirts, they were chemically enhanced, and bench only lifters. Sebastian Burns recommend a bench day and a squat/dl day if a full meet lifter and natural. Anything else was too much. I struggle with the same thing because I love to lift but sometimes that love gets you hurt and retards progress.

2.Dont go crazy with the big jumps looking for PRs every workout. Especially with the boards. That routine is all about volume and letting it raise your strength over time. Make 10 to 20 pound jumps on the boards and put the work in. So if you stop pause benching at 335x3, start your board work at 365 and work up doing triples. The overall weight you handle is going to be alot greater if you just make 50 pound jumps and only get three sets in. In the end, who gives a shit what you board press. Its an exercise to make the bench go up not an event.
we've known this for months, but refused to accept it. Lol. Thanks as always for the great advice.

Thats kind of what i have in mind. Once a week MM benching.

I'm pretty sure i can get by with more than 2 sessions a week though. I'm sure it would work great that way, but i want to focus on squats and deads individually.

Heres what i'm thinking. Please share your thoughts.

Monday- Squats. Heavy, with the same setup i'm using now. Its working great, so i dont want to change it... follow with some hamstrings and ab work.

Tuesday- shoulder and upper back work. Easy session, but i really need both of these. Shoulder press strength is embarrasing. I hit 160 strict the other day. I want to be pressing 2 plates, and benching does absolutely nothing for my shoulder press strength. Upper back work to be machine rowes and pullups. Nothing taxing on my lower back...

Thursday- deads. Probably wave the intensity of these. I think i want to work myself down from different rack heights. I can get in perfect position at knee level and work my glutes/ hammies hard. I did this last friday and wasnt sore at all, and i pulled 585 beltless??? Maybe work down the rack a little bit til i can get the position i want from the floor. Pulling from the floor is very taxing on my low back, mainly because i lean over the bar and use a lot of quads and low back. Thats what i'm trying to fix...

Friday- completely destroy myself with MM bench. Recover all weekend

So basically 3 hard sessions and an accy day. I'm pretty sure this is how i want to set it up, and if i have recovery issues, then i'll reduce more. I'm almost handling 4 brutal sessions now, so 3 should be pretty easy. Especially if i pull from the rack.

I wouldn't do lower body sessions the day before upper body work. Lower body sessions tax the body aloty more then the upper body does. Take that from someone who did it that way for a loong time and didn't make any bench progress.

Also if bench is what your mainly focused on why not do it first during the week, when your the freshest?

2-4-13

Box squats
45x10,10

Medium box
135x10
135x5
225x5
275x3
315x3
375x3 PR!

Low box
275x3
315x3
370x3 PR!

Few good mornings, but they werent what i was looking for...

Bottom up Pin squats
Low pin (probably 2-3" above parallel)
135x5
225x5
315x5
365 fail

High pin (half squat- typical gym rat squatting depth lol)
225x5
315x5
365x5
405x5
455x5
Added belt
495x5
545x5

Good session! Really liked the pin squats. Felt my glutes big time in these...

Thought it was funny. Nobody paid any attention when i was squatting 370 for reps to below parallel, but all kinds of people gathered around when i started piling on plates for pin squats. I wasnt impressed with it. I would much rather see 405 repping to below parallel than even 600+ being half squatted, but hey, guess it looked like a full squat to most people in the gym. Lol.
