Hi, I'm about to start the intermediate texas method program for my bench but I'm unsure as to what percentage of my 1RM/5RM I should use for the volume day. Any suggestion? I was thinking I would do 93% of my 5RM, which is currently 150, so I would be doing 140x5x5.

Thank you,

Just pick something and try it out. If you can't get at least 20 reps on the 5 sets, back off the weight, if you can get all 25, add more.

id start lower than that, say 130.

If those numbers are in pounds, then I'd just stick to linear periodization and eating.

Shafley is right, unless you're above 60 years old you most likely have some growing to do.
