Week 1 Day 3
Warm-up Bench: 5×70, 3×90, 3×105
5/3/1 Bench: 5×115, 5×130, 7×150
BBB Bench: 2x10x85 + 3x8x85
Tricep Extensions: 1x12x35lb + 4x12x45lb
Pretty easy day. Using right lats, and triceps more again. Boring But Big sets felt really light. I think the 2 month bodybuilder assistance isolation exercises contributed to overall increase in strength for bench. I made the move to sprinkle in some hypertrophy due to the assistance being so easy. I may or may not do this with the other core lifts, but I think I’m going to continue adding 1 or 2 post BBB hypertrophy exercises on the pressing days. Squats and deadlifts are fairly taxing on the body especially with the BBB sets so I think I’ll forgo any hypertrophy after those exercises.
