Last week, you started bench-strength day with the same exercises you're going to conquer again today. Lower reps mean you'll bump the weight up. Remember, you want to work your way up to 85% of your one-rep max, even if you know what that max is. Go through as many reps as you need for your joints to be adequately warmed up, but make sure you don't fatigue yourself before the real lifting begins.
