I've been running a version of SS for approx. six weeks now. I Bench and Squat twice a week(Wednesday and Sunday). On the Friday I Deadlift and SOHP, with Close Grip Bench and Skull-Crushers as well to give extra support to my Bench. All sets are Ramped Up, 3X5 after warm up. The exception is DL which is only 1X5. I started light and slowly built up; I've only been adding about 1 kilo every workout. Up until now I've been making slow but steady progress. That's still the case with Squat, DL and SOHP. Even Pull Ups and Chin Ups are slowly improving... But Mr Bench Press is not my friend. I have always struggled to build a decent Bench. Everyone has their Kryptonite exercise and Bench is mine. That's why I included a lot of heavy tricep work in my routine. Up until tonight, it seemed to be working. The first two work sets were hard but I still completed the five Reps without any major problem. The last Set was a different matter; I struggled for the first three but got them cleanly. The last two I only made by the skin of my teeth and the help of my Spotter. I could also feel my arse lifting off the Bench... It looks like I may be about to Stall. If that's the case I reckon I have the following options: 1)Deload Bench but keep the linear progression on the other Lifts at the present time. 2)Change the Rep system for Bench; instead of 3X5, do 5/5/3/2. So the same number of Reps but spread out and with heavier weight. 3)Substitute heavy Dumbbell Bench for Barbell. This will also act as a de-load since my heaviest DB Bench is 15 - 20 kilos lighter than my heaviest Barbell Bench at the moment. I apologise for such a long post, but I'm really hacked off at the moment. Everything was going well until now. I would appreciate any advice you guys can give me. Thanks.
