Bench Press Day

25 February 2012

Another strong session, although I couldn't finish the 5x3 with 290 lbs. as prescribed. Still did better than I expected.

Bench press:

Warmup x a few sets
295 lbs. x 1
320 lbs. x 1 (again, fast and explosive like it should be)
290 lbs. x 3 x 1 set, x 2 x 3 sets
275 lbs. x 3 x 1 set (lowered the weight on the last triple)

Triceps were pretty fried at this point, so I didn't do any close-grip pressing.

Pullups 5x5 (I still have that weird pain in my left lat)

Smith machine bent-over rows x 4 sets x 8-10 reps

DB flyes 40 lbs. x A.M.A.P

Tricep pushdowns, medium, 2 sets x 10+ reps

Cut the workout short due to time constraints but returned the next day to finish it off.
