    130kgx4, 130kgx2
    Missed the last rep, at the fourth rep I forgot to reset properly and the bar came up about 4inch in front of my chins and above the floor. Felt scary for my back so I dropped it. I punished myself with two extra reps after some rest. Next time.......

    Looks like shorter workouts are getting the job done for you.

    Thats possible, it seems that for the press and bench, I have two goals, to do bench 80kg for reps and 50 for the press. Im inspired doing parts from a womens press program from sscoach Inman, check this out.
    A copy from Inmans text at the forum:
    I've had some success with the following with some of my older clients who only train twice a week (and therefore only press and bench once each per week):

    Week 1 Day 1: Press Vol 4x5
    Week 1 Day 2: Bench Vol 4x5
    Week 2 Day 1: Press Int 2x3 + backoff 3x5
    Week 2 Day 2: Bench Int 2x3 + backoff 3x5

    The Volume day sets are a few lbs lighter than the Intensity triples, and the backoff sets on Intensity day are generally 1 or 2 lbs below the weight on Volume day. Everything goes up 1 lb each cycle.

    For example, for a female client in her mid-60's (I don't have her training log in front of me, so I'm going off memory here):

    Week 1 Day 1: Press Vol 41x5x4
    Week 1 Day 2: Bench Vol 58x5x4

    Week 2 Day 1: Press Int 45x3x2 + 40x5x3
    Week 2 Day 2: Bench Int 62x3x2 + 57x5x3

    Week 3 Day 1: Press Vol 42x5x4
    Week 3 Day 2: Bench Vol 59x5x4

    Week 4 Day 1: Press Int 46x3x2 + 41x5x3
    Week 4 Day 2: Bench Int 63x3x2 + 58x5x3

    Still on LP with 2,5kg raises. Im thinking of changing it to a volume DL day in the future, with 3-4x5reps.
