    Thanks for the response and feedback - really appreciate it.

    I think I'm more likely to fail bench first than row - but will see how I go!

    Yeah my bad, typo edited just before your reply. I am indeed on week 4.

    I certainly didn't think I was superman! The weights were based on my 10 rep max which I sorted out at the start of the...

    Question re: adding 10% at the end of the cycle.
