We trained the Bench Press throughout the month of January. In week 1, we worked to a heavy 5-rep, then a heavy 3-rep in week 2, and we tested our 1-rep maxes in week 3. Week 4 was our de-load week. That would make this week 5; time to test the strength gains we made on the bench press during that block of training.
Our chosen test, "Lynne", is an assessment of upper-body strength relative to your body weight. This workout gives us an idea of our strength-to-weight ratio on both a push and a pull. For most, this is a reality check. We should all have a goal of bench pressing significantly more than our body weight and doing multiple repetitions of unassisted pull-ups.
