Four Weeks Of TUT Style Benching

Leave a comment


While there are countless combinations to choose from, here is a sample of how you could account for both optimal rep range and TUT for the bench press in one month. The key is to expose the strength-based rep count to the entire spectrum of optimal TUT.

Week One
Bench Press – 5 sets, 2 reps, TUT – 12 seconds , Rest 3 minutes
That is 5 sets of 2 reps, with each rep taking 6 seconds to complete.

Week 2
Bench Press – 4 sets, 3 reps, TUT – 15 seconds, Rest 3 minutes
That is 4 sets of 3 reps, with each rep taking 5 seconds to complete.

Week 3
Bench Press – 3 sets, 4 reps, TUT – 20 seconds, Rest 3 minutes
That is 3 sets of 4 reps, with each rep taking 5 seconds to complete.

Week 4
Bench Press – 5 sets, 6 reps, TUT – 18 seconds, Rest 3 minutes
That is 5 sets of 6 reps, with each rep taking 3 seconds to complete.
