Off Topic, but I don't do bench presses anymore because I consider the bench press to be a vanity excercise - you do it to show off at the gym. As a former college football player, I have done a lot of benching (never did a mix, but I did sets of 10 at 315 lbs). There are rare moments in life where you need to press. If you want to improve your health, fitness, and tennis, work on your hips and core. These days, I do a lot of olympic lifts - clean and jerk/ snatch because I work and don't have time to lift more than 30 minutes, a couple times per week, and these excercises help me work arms, kegs, and core with a single excercise.
