5K Pump and Run Training

#1 Postby VEGRUNNER » Sun Jan 15, 2012 12:25 pm

I am currently training for the 5k pump and run at the arnold fitness classic in March. Below is my current training program. I was wondering if there are any exercises I should add or change to help improve my bench press. My goals for this year are to bench my bodywieght 20 times and break 20 minutes in the 5k. I am also concerned about overtraining (mucsles have been sore for more then 2 days lately) and was wondering if I should shorten my workouts or take more days off (I am 35 years old). For the bench press portion for the workout I am integrated the following workout into my routine (http://www.menshealth.com/fitness/workout-plans-4).
