Gant, any special reason to do them straight after the bench instead of just Wednesday?
Yeah, because it worked for me.

A better answer might be that it's an auxiliary exercise, and training your triceps in the hypertrophy range to failure will produce a different adaptation, blah blah blah. But I like the first answer (worked for Westside, too).

Toy around with OH DB presses or JM presses as needed. Find what works for you. Like Dave said, varying the set/rep schemes helps, too (the point of which is to produce a different adaptation, hence the DB work).
