Seanzilla posted the following article a little while back in another thread with Kennelly about increasing your bench from 225 lbs to 315 lbs. Hardcore Powerlifting Essentially, it's a program doing 8 sets x 3 reps at 45% of your 1 RM and increasing 5% for a week. Once you reach 75%, you drop down to 4 sets. He says you should be able to do your previous 1RM (100%) 3 times by the time you reach that mark (12 weeks?). I was thinking about incorporating this into a full routine lifting 4 days a week. Each day would focus on one lift follow the above set/rep routine for the following lifts: Bench, Deadlift, Front Squat (I don't have a power rack so I front squat), and Power Cleans. I'd probably through in one or two assistance lifts depending on how the day goes. Any thoughts on this? I recently just hit my plateau and figured I might try something new. I would think that if this rep/set routine works for bench, then it should work for everything else.
