    Day before benching at the gym...

    Happy Thanksgiving to the bodybuilding community. I hope your gains have been endowed with a high muscle:fat ratio, in w/ever bulking range you are hoping to achieve.

    Tomorrow is a bench press day and today is a back auxiliary day. If this is your circumstance then what exercises/muscles might you avoid to avoid bench fatigue the following day? Could be pull day could be leg day I guess.
    You eat where you're at.

    What does your "back auxiliary" day typically consist of? I'd say avoid excessive movements which target the shoulders etc. if you're planning on trying to PR tomorrow. If it's just a regular chest day, then you should be recovered fine either way.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    Nothing particularly.

    I bench back to back days often. Different variations and protocols of course.

    I'm deloading on DB Bench right now, or at least I should be. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to exhaust the muscles with the lower weight or not, but I wouldn't say I'm amping it up that much either way. Definitely not going for PRs lol.

    As far as back auxiliary, I do a straight 6 day cycle and will occasionally lighten up and lay off if my muscles or body tells me it doesn't want to do something. The cycle is split between chest back and legs every other day, and the auxiliary syncopates in between in the same direction.

    So, A - B - C - becomes A c B a C b, technically giving two days rest between X and x. If I want to do higher volume per workout I will marginalize x, but often just work peripheral muscles as well.

    I've never really done consecutive days for a muscle group, and have heard about it sparingly. Any articles on it you you would point to specifically?

    Reactive training systems articles and training in general

    Barbell medicine YouTube videos and podcasts on training

    Greg Nuckols for Bulgarian type full body

    It's nothing special at all, you just have to train sensibly with volume and intensity (doesn't have too be too easy either, but you generally started lower intensities and ramp up slowly as you get used to the frequency and volume)
