Using the programme outlined here (part 1): http://www.impulseadventure.com/weights/bench-rick.html

I was NOT able to get all of the reps on every single one of the last sets in each session - I was always one rep shy of what was given.
The spreadsheet predicted a new 1-RM of 97.5kg (+10kg/22lbs). I was not able to achieve this.
Instead my results were:
Still pretty happy with the results and would definitely recommend the programme for someone who is at a bench plateau!
I benched Monday and Thursday with no other work for chest. I did do some tricep work after every workout though.
