Some background...I'm thinking of trying to get on with the local
police unit in their reserve program. Among various entrance
requirements is a fitness requirement consisting of 5 tests, one of
which is a 1-rep bench press (is that the 1RM figure I see on the
group?) at 88% of body weight. I'm looking at about 2 months before
the test. I don't have to pass all the tests and I've been
concentrating on the 1.5 mile run and sit up tests, but I think I'd
like to have a cushion and see what I can do to improve my bench.

Try the routine, and probably more importantly technique adjustments,
