      Tomarrow I will finish bench everyday phase one… should I rest a week before doing phase 2? Also I had a question about rear delts/rotator cuff… what the best way I should be strenghting them because I can tell it’s what’s holding my bench back… appreciate any input

      Hey brother! Nope, you are good to go right into phase 2!

      We have a ton of rear delts in my programming now but, I suggest adding in some bent over back flys, face pulls, snatch grip elbows wide barbell rows!

      Are the “Normal Split” on the Bench Everyday Phases just our chest day benching routine? Also, what do you prefer for the close grip bench day for reps and sets? Am I focused more on going heavy everyday?

      Also, do the reps and sets stay the same on Normal Grip, Close Grip, and Floor Presses or do you recommend changing that up? I apologize for all of the questions!

      Hey man! Here is an example of rep ranges for bench everyday. We are not shooting to tax the muscle rather working on “Greasing the groove” We are gettting ‘Heavy on sessions that states so in the programming other than on the days where I have a set percentage.

      Rep/ Set Range Example:

      135×3

      225×2

      315×1

      365×1

      405×1

      So you want me doing the rep range of 3,2,1,1,1 on normal grip, close grip, and even on floor close grip as well?

      I guess I am lol. I’m just super confused for some dumb reason. I understand the days where I do 70% of 1RM, but for instance, on Fridays all it says is “Close Grip Floor Press” and I didn’t understand what reps and sets to follow. Apologize for my confusion lmao.

      Hahah no problem man! Totally understand. This depends. How much are you benching right now and at what body weight?

      This method is is used to teach the lifter how to bench. It will increase your bench as well, but most importantly you will learn to bench and become very comfortable under the bar.

      I am maxing at 285 Bench weighing 160. I used to bench 315 and trying to get back in my heavy lifting. I do competitions as well so I’ve been grinding like crazy the past month. I’m a gym manager and getting this gym constructed made all my gains leave me bc I was working so much. But no excuses lol.
