Ed Coans Bench Press Training Cycle
- 10-09-2013, 01:24 PM
This is a training cycle that me and one of my lifting partners have started to increase our Bench Press for our lifting meets. We are currently heading into Week 3 this Sunday and I can say, I've been noticing strength gains already. The cycle is spread out into 2 days per week: heavy day and light day. Day one you do 3 excersises: Bench Press, Close Grip Bench Press, and Incline Bench Press. After we usually do a circuit that includes chest, back, and triceps and do that usually 3 times, all lighter weight with a lot of reps. On the second day, you do 2 sets of light bench press and we usually do some dumbbell work. Just click the link then enter your max bench and hit calculate, and it will fill in the charts for you. I will leave the link below. Me and my training partner are both juniors in high school and anticipate to do very well at our lifting meets this winter. I believe this is going to help us tremendously. What are your opinions, and do you have any other good workouts to increase strength and size? Please share!

Where are your numbers at right now? I'd imagine at your age the only thing that you NEED to be doing is showing up and working hard.

I weigh about 210
I'm currently in the middle of my football season so I don't do as much training during the season, but I train everyday of the week when it's not football season.
