    Thanks PhdPepper! I'v ran the program before week 3 day 4 is always a killer so i'm hoping using a slightly lower 1rep max will allow me to complete it! I'v also changed my grip to a narrower grip for this run to take off a bit of stress on my shoulder and chest. We shall see if it helps when I go back to the wider grip!

    Week2 Day 1 Smolv Jr Bench Program

    Training max 375 = 70% +10lbs == 275- I'm also switching thing up a bit- I plan to hit 85% of my true 1 rep max 395 (335) for 4 reps every day for the next 50 days. It can be in 1 set or 2 sets or 3 sets depending how im feeling-

    Bench 335x4 275x6x6 (didnt record 1 set) Last set I went ahead and did my AMRAP set and got 11.5 reps.



    Overall, Felt great my bodyweight is slowly creeping up- I look similar leanness so minimal fat gains-- Goals for 2022- 450 lb bench Press- April 20- 420 lb bench-. After I hit these 2 goals I will then be happy and will run a 1 year slow slow cut to finally be a RIPPED nasty beast mode 205 lb animal! Stay tuned 2023 me gonna be a beast.

    Smolv Jr Bench Program Week 2 Day 3 315 8 sets of 4 + 335 x4

    12/27/21

    Smolv Jr Bench Program Week 2 Day 3-- 80% of 375 training max + 15#. So We have 315 8 sets of 4.

    Bench Press 335 x 4 (daily reps EVERY DAY). 315x4 reps 8 sets- Last set I hit 7. O

    Over all feeling good but the extra work accessorys will need to be lowered. Going on News year vacation so there will be a small gap in week 3 progress- I wil be testing 1 rep max gain in late January once I return from the Snowboarding trip. Once I'v completed the smolv Jr bench program and rested I do believe I should be able to peak add + 10 to my 395 for a 405 finnally. We shall See.

    After this i'll be running a 50 day Press program. I will be decreasing the bench press volume but increasing the volume on accessories such as CG bench, Larsen Press, OH Press and incline press. I do believe this should leap me forward to my to 420/ by april 20 goal

    Stay tuned K TY Bye
