    As a general guideline, do the one you suck at first. For most people, that means they will press first.
    Well, my bench is almost 100 pounds ahead of my press, so I guess it's obvious which one is the one that sucks. I'll try switching the order, though I suspect it might be smart to try and cut back my bench a tiny bit if I do that. I was doing bench first since I was basing the programming off one I read in the Barbell Prescription, which recommended benching first.

All they need to know is MWF; Sq, B, Pr, DL, PC; add 10 pounds, then 5 then 2.5 per workout. Then spend some time explaining why this simple and straightforward protocol works so well.
    I disagree: this podcast dispels the perception that NLP is ďadd 5 lbs, grind, die.Ē How many people know back-off sets have a place in NLP?

    The part about the performance in the press dropping off was perfectly timed for me. "Just get the 15 reps" is exactly where I am in there. Doing a hundred kilo press seems so far away right now.

    When I add the extra day of pressing and do heavy singles, how do I determine what constitutes a heavy single? Monday I did 175 for 5 sets of 3. I think Iíve got a few more workouts of progress as it is but Iíd like to try the extra presses each week.

    Watch Nick's video "Press and Bench Press Programming - Getting and Staying Unstuck". You'll find the answer to your question, and a lot more, there.

    Nick's advice on the back off squat sets got me through a sticking point and to a PR of 400 lb today. I had read it in PP but didn't really know to apply it.

    I had been dreading 3x5 squats all the way from 340 lbs and at about 370 my form was deteriorating SIGNIFICANTLY and I just felt beat mentally and physically. Once I heard this podcast I felt like I should try the back off sets. A high set of 1x5 is so much less intimidating and much easier to focus. Instead of having ~5 out of 15 reps be good, now I'm getting about 10 -12 good reps and the top set keeps going up. I'm now confident I can fix my form issues without resetting. My press also got unstuck as I had much more in the tank after the squat.

    Thanks to Nick and Ray. Repetitive or not, sometimes it helps hearing things several times.

    People forget this part. It's all in the Gray Book.

    I thought your information on press programming was very useful. To clarify, on NLP when you canít do 3 sets of 5 anymore without stalling (and youíve addressed the 3 questions etc) you try and squeeze out the reps as best you can ( even if you do an additional set of 3, for example because your last sets were 5,4,3 to make up the total 15 reps)? Then when that fails you switch to 5 sets of 3, then singles to get to your 15 rep total?
