    1) as a means to lessen the range of motion, understanding I’m leaving a portion of the lift largely untrained. For example I may do a 1-2 board to avoid the extra pec stretch and shoulder movement. Reducing fatigue and injury risk if overuse is a concern in a training cycle

    2) I would use bigger boards 3-4 board with heavy loads for reps, the goal here is to get the body and triceps used to pressing a heavy load in the same path as a bench press. I would break these up in phases of 12 rep range and 6 rep range. This would only be done if triceps were a lagging muscle group and need to be worked in the same bar path as the bench (so really only needed for someone doing powerlifting)

    Ok makes sense. So if someone is having trouble locking out 405 (the second half of the positive in a rep, in which the tricep plays a big role in) the boards can train that second half range of motion more.

    Yes but to be clear, they are using the boards to allow themselves to bench sets and reps (a lot of volume) in that range

    NOT using the boards to lift heavy and lift large loads in that range.

    Meaning your board presses the way i would do things would be more at 60% 1RM then made progressively heavier in a near linear fashion for a block of time

    I personally do not recommend the “traditional” approach of doing heavier or supermaximal work with boards

    I understand.

    In your opinion, what's the most % of your 1RM you'd hit with planks?

    80% x 5 reps? I feel like that's a good strength number without risking injury (if properly warmed up and form is proper as well)

    After working let's say 60% for 3 chest days and then 70% for a few chest days?
