    Bench program to pair with Candito's 6 week program

    Any recommendations for a bench program to pair with Candito's 6-week program?

    I've run his program in the past and didn't get much out of my bench with it so was wanting to pair it with a specific bench program.

    Thanks fellas.

    One of Nuckols 28 programs would work. I almost ran the 3x intermed-medium with the C6W.

    Didn't you try some other bench programming with the Candito once before?

    I believe I did and it was the Nuckol's 28 program one. I know it falls a week or 2 short of Candito's 6-week program. I was hoping to find something that runs alongside it. I know there's a mash-up of his advanced bench program that's been used with his 6-week strength program.

    Edit: Looking at that Greg Nuckol's 3x intermediate medium set up could definitely work. Question is since it’s 4 weeks what would you do with the other two weeks?

    1: Drop week 6 from Candito. Just use E1rms from the week 5 sets of 1-4. Week 6 is 1rm testing but you don't need that if you're not going into a meet.
    2: Don't do a 1rm in Nuckols week 4 day 3. Just do the amap set at 85% and max out in week 5 of Candito.
    3: In week 5 of Candito, bench a heavy set of 1-4 on day 2, just as planned for sq and DL, and calculate your new 1rms from there.

    C's adv. bench together with his 6 week would be hella hard IMO.

    That’s an awesome plan man and I really appreciate you breaking it down like that. It sounds like I have a game plan now thanks to you.

    Yeah, the mash-up of his two programs just looked like way too much and would absolutely bury me.

    What percentage would you use for the heavy set of bench on week 5? I guess using 97.5% for 1-4 would be good since that's the percentage used on Candito's. Would it be that percentage based on your AMAP set from Nuckol's program?

    97.5% would be a good target. Adjust based on feeling.

    Would you bump up the max as it mentions on Nuckol's program based on the AMAP then use that max for week 5 on Candito's program?

    Yes but not sure I'd try for a true 1rm. Again, it would depend on feeling and goals for that cycle

    Nah I won't go for a true 1rm. I'll just go for 1-4 reps at 97.5%.

    So for example on week 4 of Nuckol's it says 180 for AMAP then If you get 5-6, bump your max up 5 pounds. If you get 7+, bump your max up 10 pounds.

    So I'll bump the training max up based on the AMAP and then use that TM on week 5 of Candito. Does that make sense cause it does to me but may sound confusing lol.
