    Hi, My name is Elad, 26 Years old, 5'10", 200.
    Currently on the Texas Method, As Nick suggested on one of the articles I am doing 5x5 Press on Wednesday and 7x1 on Friday, keeping the bench on 5x5 and 1x5.
    I still can make a good progress on the singles but what can I do if I can no longer progress on the 5x5 day ? I am taking 90% of the intensity day for that week.

    all the other lifts going up pretty well.

    1) Resting about 5-8 Min in Between sets.
    2)Adding 2.5 Pounds on the press on each intensity day.
    3)Eating 4000-4200 Calories a day.

    Press intensity day weight 162.5 7x1
    Volume day press weight 146 5x5

    Try 10 minutes between sets. The 5 minutes is most likely the problem.

    Tried, got stuck.
    what would you suggest ? maybe 90% of the 7x1 on the intensity day become too much ? would it be a good idea to drop the percentage a little bit? or just get 25 reps however ?

    You're a female, right? You can't go up 2.5 pounds on the press.

    I was doing the same press and bench scheme. I found that after about eight weeks I had to back off the 5x5 volume press to a little under 85%, which still produced enough stress to keep progressing on the singles.

    I found my self fight for that 5x5 with 90% of my 7x1 with no luck, ended up with 8x3 on my last volume day, 85% will be much needed break, thank you.
