Refining this as I go on...

What I am thinking for my heaviest bench day, since I am working in 2 week heavy blocks, is this:

Week 1

--Heavy Singles x 6 reps, same weight.
--2 Board Press, 6 x 3

Week 2

--Heavy Singles x 3 reps, same weight as week one, then 3 ramping singles with last rep as possible PR attempt.
--Drop weight, 3 sets of doubles.
--Drop weight, 3 sets of triples.

I like the idea you posted from Ditillo:

Quote:
Out of interest; Ditillo recommends multiple singles (5-8), then take 20lbs off the bar and do a couple doubles, then take another 20lbs off and do 3 triples.
Working on a tentative plan right now. Will post soon.
