DE Bench Day

Had a great workout today, bench setup is coming along well I did 3 diff grips today and moved on to some heavy press work for doubles.After that some dumbell hammer grip floor presses for reps and some dumbell rows.Pretty good upper body pump from the rows and presses.

DE Dench Day
Bench 9x3 47.5kg
Press 4x2 47.5kg
Floor Dumbell press 3x10 22.5kg
1 Arm Dumbell Row 4x10 25kg

I decided to do the DE bench day after DE squat day to allow a full days rest before heavy squat day.

Eric the plan is to follow the basic westside template,2 heavy (ME) days and 2 DE days.I will rotate exercises every 2 weeks and see how things go,I will say I am a little worried about not free squatting tho and losing my groove that why I have kept them in there, since I am only really interested in strength it seems like the way to go, I like some of the things you have been posting on high intensity stuff and wanted to give it a try.

Mon- ME squat and accesories
Wed- ME Bench and accesories
Fri- DE Squat and accesories
Sat- DE Bench and accesories

I will rotate accesorie stuff as needed too.Any thoughts?

Is there a certain writeup you are following you can link?

My suggestions would probably differ quite a bit...I'm not really a WSB kinda dude and really I don't think you are any where near the point where you need to rotate exerciseas as often as most of those templates suggest...

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Well it's not that I don't like it.....I just don't think it's necessarily appropriate for the wider audience it's been introduced to and I don't like that the internet has spawned this myth that there is only one way to skin a cat. I learn from it just like a learn from many different things and schools of though.

I don't like stuff that makes people base things on assumptions, expectations, preconceived notions....instead of basing things on WHAT HAPPENS.

I do A and B happens so I use that to formulate a plan. Rather than someone tells me that IF I do A, B will happen even though B will only really happen some of the time to some of the people. Catch my drift?

Your basically saying what works for some may not work for others right?!!

Where does that leave me with setting things up? my plan for 2moro ME squat is try hit a decent single or max and then try for maybe 5 singles at around 90ish% of that max for the day? Or would it be better to try better last weeks 5 sets of 2 by 5 or so lbs? and work my way up to singles in coming weeks?
