I've done numerous Google-Fu searches and searches on this forum and I couldn't find any information on the following. I don't know the "proper" way to work up to a max set of 3 reps like the WSFSB tells you to do. Here's what I did for my last ME Upper Body day for the Bench Press: 45x5x2 65x3x2 75x3 95x3 115x3 135x3 145x3 155x3 165x3 175x3 180x3 --> 5 lb PR but the third rep went up HARD 185x3 --> FAILED Looking back on it now I realize that's definitely too much volume. Someone posted in my log to do the following: 145x3x5 175x3x3 I don't know how I would then work in my max. Would I do it after the 3 sets of 175? In general, I need help in this area. On a side note, I FINALLY ordered Starting Strength and Practical Programming. I'm guessing those books will definitely give me some insight into this topic but until then... I suck!!!
