1 rep max bench


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about 1 rep max bench within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: Recently I completely plateaued on bench.. So I started a 5x5 sort of deal for bench, and it worked out alright.. Then later I switched it up and started warming up, then jumping right into my one rep max and working my way down.. I've had some of the best chest days of my life training like this, but progress is kind of harder to judge.. I know a lot of guys say "you should be putting more weight on the bar every week".. Well with this routine I'm not really changing the weights all that

    1 rep max bench

    Recently I completely plateaued on bench.. So I started a 5x5 sort of deal for bench, and it worked out alright.. Then later I switched it up and started warming up, then jumping right into my one rep max and working my way down..


    I've had some of the best chest days of my life training like this, but progress is kind of harder to judge.. I know a lot of guys say "you should be putting more weight on the bar every week".. Well with this routine I'm not really changing the weights all that much, I'm progressing in rep ranges..


    So here's what my progress is like.. Every week I've been adding 1 rep to my maxes.. So for example, here's what progress would look like


    week 1- 225x1
    week 2- 225x2
    week 3- 225x3


    Anyway, it's continued like that, and my 1 rep max 5 weeks ago is now my 5 rep max.. So since I'm not actually adding more weight on, its a little harder to judge my progress.. What do you guys think?.. Should I ride with this routine as long as it works or is the progress nothing special?

    Do what works for you until it no longer does, then switch up your program after that

    So... you wanna add weight (to your 1RM) but don't wanna add load during the sets. Why?
