UB, Why not do the structure used for 1 Rep Max testing;
50% 8x
70% 5x
80% 3x
90% 2x
102% to 105% 1x

Except for BS 5x training, alter the 1x to your target weight & do your 5x.
Its a really sly way to approach your target weight, without interfering with your basic strength – should work just perfecto. Or make a tougher way of doing a similar routine, by adjusting this basic structure yourself. DA
