There is a specific outline of % 's to follow for each of the week over a 9 week cycle, but it can also be done just using the "idea" of the day. Honestly, I think he just needs a bit more bench volume to make it work.

I have been hitting PR's on all 3 lifts, most of them substantial. He has been hitting really solid PR's on squats and deadlifts, but his bench just doesn't seem to be improving. He believes its due to lack of volume/frequency.
Most times the best approach is to try and get his chest, shoulders and triceps as strong as possible.

If I were you I would ask to do the Cube for the main lifts, and then structure the assistance work in a conjugate style.
