Joe – had a follow up for you. As stated above, doing push 2x/week (P/P/L/rest with an extra rest day sometimes) with my chest feeling recovered by leg day doing the two exercises I discussed above (chest press machine/pecdeck or cable fly). I’m thinking about throwing in 1-2 working sets of the chest press machine on leg day to take advantage of this recovery, or at the very least test to see if that is the case at all.

Assuming recovery is there, would you recommend changing the rep range or maybe leaving more reps in reserve on these leg day chest press sets?

Each push session I go for beating the logbook on my 1 working set which is 10-12 reps (0-2rir depending). After that set I chase the same reps with the same weight but it requires a short rest/pause, and I usually finish off with a back off to just stretch at the bottom and get some slower reps in.

I am the king of that chest press machine at this point and my ass is imprinted into the seat forever, lol

Thanks dude
