Let me just say first of all that I've been on this program for about a year and a half, I still haven't met the 2/3/4 plate on my lifts (apart from 3 plate squat) that Jason recommended everyone get to but that's probably more due to me not bulking the whole time on this routine. I want to...

Wendler bench day

I'm currently on Wendler, I'm on the 3rd week, 1st cycle. I'm doing it 3 days a week, putting OHP on bench press day, and I was wondering if I needed to include close grip bench or would my tricep already be taxed enough with just bench and OHP or if I should include CG after overhead press.

Cool Madcow's 5x5, I like it, But it seems like an impossible programe

The squats and bench in one day ticks me off, Squats would sap all my strength, And is that all with the chest workout with the 5x5, You do a 5x5 bench press and you're finished? I wanna get into it to break a plateau but i am afraid it will go to ****. Has anyone tried it?

Should I split triceps and biceps?

When I work on arms, I do triceps first then biceps. However, I have done it (incidentally) where I did triceps one day and biceps the next. For obvious reasons I can lift heavier weight when I do biceps on their own. Does this mean I should do biceps separate from triceps?
