Max Effort Upper from Saturday. Hitting 6RM Incline Bench. 255 for the 1st set and 265 for the 2nd set.
When I go to my top sets I don't just chose a weight by how it looks on the bar. I haven't done this lift before so I took about 80%~ of my Floor Press Max (370 taken from 345 x 3). Using it as my Max I chose a weight that would put my Max about 5lbs higher (6RM = 83~85%) allowing for some variation based on my fatigue level that day.
Another question some of you in Instagram land might be angrily asking yourself or the person next to you at work is "Why is this meat stick using incline and floor pressing for his bench press variations?" And you'd be right to ask. This is my 3rd time trying to train with a Conjugate style system (Max Effort and Dynamic Effort Days). In the past I tried to use the full range exercises with lower reps 1-3, and found that I couldn't recover from the stress, along with poor nutrition and sleep, made it almost impossible. I dug deeper online, and I suggest you do the same as well, and found that people using this system use Partial ROM exercises due to the lower overall stress load put on the CNS and made recovery much easier.
