    Ilya,
    I'm sure you know what you're talking about. I don't, so how would you plan it out based on two weekly bench sessions and good recoverey?

    I already wrote what I would've done. I'm guessing your all out triple is somewhere around 110-115? So would work up to a triple of (3RM - 5kg) on the two Wednesdays you have left. And on the two Saturdays would also do triples but with around 100kg - 3-5 sets.

    What fatman said sounds very good to me. So if you want to work up to a single on a Wednesday before your meet - make it 115-120.

    Comrades,
    so today was the day of days;P
    Made 115 and 125, missed 135kg.

    Observations:
    I missed very close to my chest - weak pecs?
    My triceps were really sore almost immediately after the last attempt. Let's see how it is tomorrow.

    135kg is coming soon!

    Great job!

    I don't compete, so take this for what it's worth, but you went too heavy on the last one and probably on the one before that too. I'm guilty of doing this myself whenever I max out, so I think I'm not just talking out of my ass. 10 kgs over your recent new max (immediately after repeating this new max) was probably too ambitious.

    IMO 110 - 120 - 130 would have gone smoothly.

    Missing at chest - for me this means too heavy. If you lift raw, you will miss somewhere around or just above the mid-point position, provided that the weight is "close" to what you can lift. If you can press it from chest to sticking point, it's "close". If you get stuck on the chest, it's too heavy. You were probably tired from doing the 125 first.

    Either way, you competed and set a new meet PR, so congrats are in order!
