: I found the Monster Bench Press DVD and am
: wondering how many lifters have tried this
: program and if you got good results.
: The program is simple:
: Progress from 1 set of 3 reps to 3 sets of 3
: reps with a 2 second pause. After you hit 3
: x 3, next week add 10 lbs and start over at
: 1 x 3 reps with pause.
: Followed by tricep and shoulder assistance.
: I would appreciate any feedback.
I have used this routine (from Rich Peter's DVD) since 2009 +/-. It is a great way to build one's bench numbers in a controlled fashion and at your pace. Once you can handle the 3x3 you can surely and safely move up. I also use that philosophy with the DL and SQ.
