Then when that fails you switch to 5 sets of 3, then singles to get to your 15 rep total?
    The point is that you can't lower the stress by reducing load, volume, or frequency because you will stop making progress on the press. And you have to get better at pressing. So get all 15 reps in. Doesn't matter what the sets/reps are when 3x5 isn't getting it done anymore. When your press workouts are taking too long, go to pressing twice a week every week.

    Nick, is there anything wrong with this when switching to an upper/lower split with a weaker than normal bench relative to press?

    Upper 1: Bench 5-10x1, Press 5x5
    Upper 2: Press 5-10x1, Bench 5x5

    Thanks.

    Try it and if it doesn't work, make a change.
