16-Week Bench Press Block Program by Steve Shaw
This program combines an 8-week volume phase with an 8-week peaking phase to help you bring up your bench press. It can be run by late beginners and intermediates.
This is not merely a strength-building program. It is also a powerbuilding program and works well for building muscle.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What is the split of this workout?
It's an Upper/Lower format.
I have a question about starting weight vs reps/sets. Do I keep the same weight per set, starting light enough to finish 10 reps on the 4th set? Stopping at 10 reps on the first set even though 15-20 reps might be possible? My current procedure is starting weight for 12-15 reps increasing weight per set until 4-6 reps on 4th set.
Use the same weight. One the last set if you add a couple of reps beyond 10 then I would bump weight.
Do I need to achieve all sets of 10 reps in order to add weight? Or be able to hit the general 8-10 rep range for all sets in order to add weight? For pull ups, 13 pull ups is the most I can do. Should I utilise weighted pull ups or stick to bodyweight? Looking forward to starting this on Monday after testing my max recently.
8-10 is fine! For pull-ups once you hit 10 reps you could microload, but I suggest only very slowly with 2.5 pound increments.
