    Default bench press power

    hi,
    i'm from germany and rather new to this sport, mostly due to my tender age of 17 years! My question is, if it would make sense to do the following workout for bench press power.
    On one day i will be doing a typical "power to the people" program (2 sets of 5 reps with 80-90% of my max) then i will rest a day and follow with a program wich is focused on volume (e.g. german volume training), then i will give my muscles the chance to recover for 4 days and increase the weight in the next ptp session.
    The idea behind this program is, to achieve hypertrophy in the volume session and increase the nervous activity or make the muscles i gained more effective in the ptp session. And due to the fact, that the ptp taining imediately increases the muscles nervous activity, i will be prepared for the following volume session!
    So tell me, what do you think about it?

    it sounds like you're basically trying to recreate the Bear workout, the sister workout to PTP

    When you say power. Do you mean "power" as in "max strength/lifting as much weight as possible"?

    Or do you mean in in the sense of Olympic lifting, where "power" is being able to do the most amount of work (weight times the distance traveled by the weight) in the least amount of time?

    Because when someone says "power", I instantly think of the latter one. But I think you mean the former one...
