    Woke up with my elbow aching. I dont know if i can keep going with this, my presses were affected today. I hope adaptation occurs soon cos i dont want it intefering with bench in particular.

    Maybe you could just do maintenance for the presses while your shooting for your 20+.

    Do bench and press just once a week each, heavy as possible, one work set only.

    knkavo, i just built up to some good momentum on my bench now, if there is an opportunistic cost, it will be the GtG, but lets see what happens. Waiting for some broz like adaptation to occur..

    don't rush it. it shouldn't affect your lifts at least from the start. i'm doing daily pushups and didn't affect my lifts.

    why not just do, let's say ~10 singles throughout the day then add a rep/set next week?
