5 x 10 (can't remember the weight) I think these are just assistance and are optional.

Not sure if you're supposed to do regular bench twice or a different variation for the second lot of benching.. ?

Lot's of benching was what I thought, then I read your previous post. :popcorn:

Yeah this routine has bench pressing every workout, but some days have more volume than others, some days are lighter than others etc. Should be interesting to see if I can improve my max in all 3 lifts after I complete this program followed by the next suggested Sheiko routine, which is #37.

I bought a tape measure to measure my waist because I'm ordering a new belt soon - http://www.vegansportshop.co.uk/index.p ... -belt.html

While I was at it, I figured I should measure my legs and arms. Legs are 30" and arms are 15", not pumped up.. Yes my legs do look huge compared to the rest of my body.. :P

I'm excited to try the belt. It's going to be a birthday present for myself :) Actually if people ask me what I would like for my birthday I'm just going to suggest that they give me money for the belt.

30 inches = 76.2 cm
15 inches = 38.1 cm
