In attempting to achieve something as major as adding 10% to your bench press in 10 weeks, you must make chest the main focus of your training. This is done by implementing the Weider Priority Training Principle, wherein you prioritize your chest training and put other bodyparts on the back burner for the required 10-week period. This is done in two ways. First, train chest alone in one session, without the energy-sapping accompaniment of working other bodyparts. Second, scale down the volume of work on other bodyparts to maintenance level, leaving the full blood-and-thunder exploits for your chest workouts. You cannot continue to go all out on all other bodyparts while turning up the heat on your pec work, or you'll overwork your recuperation system. The workloads allocated to chest and other bodyparts will be covered in detail in step six.
