Hey rip, just wondering about how I should progress on Benchpress. I am two weeks into the program, and have been progressing at 5lbs per workout on my bench. It may still be too early to tell as today was only my 4th time doing bench, but when i add 5lbs per workout I can do the first 2 set X 5 with no help. Everytime on the last set I need the tiniest push possible from a spotter on my last rep. From what I've gathered from the book and wiki, you should only be in trouble if your sets look along the lines of 5 reps, then 4 then 4 or less again. Again, I only struggle on the last rep of the last set. I'm just not totally sure how important the fact is that I need that fraction of a push on the last rep, last set.
