I gotcha. Glad you did because it got me thinking about sumos.

Yep, some upper back work needs to be in somewhere and if you only want to Press twice then that could work fine. But we don't want to risk diluting the routine with too many exercises or producing residual fatigue if you sandwich the Bent Row between two lower body days. How would you fit that in overall?
I generally don't need much work for back. Usually one set of dumbbell rows or a couple of barbell rows a week to keep my strength up.

I was mulling over:

Day 1
Heavy bench - Work up in singles, back off set with 275.
Dumbbell rows - 1 set
Military Press -

Day 2
Heavy military - Work up in singles, back off set with 185.
Barbell rows - 1-2 working sets
Bench Press/CGBP -

Consistent heavy work has not been a part of my workouts in a year or more because of the strains and pains. But, adding the Sling Shot I was able to train heavy every week. I may be able to do triples on bench on the second day but I will need a month to see how my body is handling the heavy days first.

How are you structuring your triples? Ramped?

With bench and press I really need to take a new direction, so hopefully frequent heavy work will pay off.

Also not sure if I need 2 OHP days. Thoughts?
