does anyone out there have a program to drastically increase your bench press?
when i was in high school, i was tall and skinny, and was benching 135lbs one time. i was 6'2, 150 lbs or so myself at that time. i hit college, played college soccer and rugby, got in the gym with a our trainers, and in 4 years pushed my bench up to 300 lbs and grew to be about 230 lbs. the first year i made the most drastic gains, going from 135 lbs to 225 lbs relatively quickly, and i tacked on about 25 lbs a year to the bar after that. there was a scientific bench program that i used to get there. it was calculated from your one rep max, and you would do a certain percentage of that weight for a very specific number of sets. it was incredibly effective. i was putting on 20-25 lbs every 8-10 weeks or so at first. im looking for something similar to that, if anyone happens to have a good program.
sadly, since having my kids, my bench press one rep max has fallen to about 240lbs and my weight has fallen to 220ish, but its a little sloppier 220 than i want (not a lot sloppier, just enough to get me down though). i i really want to get my bench back up to around 300 lbs or so. even if i could hit 275 lbs and plateau'ed out from there in a few months id be thrilled. i googled some bench programs, but they all cost money, and im not sure if they are what im looking for. i dont want to pay for a program that i know someone out there has for free.
i know some of you guys are putting up some major weight. if anyone has something similar to this, let me know.in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.
