Bench Press PR Day and the Plague

12 December 2014

I've come down with what feels like the plague. Was still able to lift, but energy levels were down and people at the gym were giving me the evil eye when I would sneeze or blow my nose. I made sure I wiped everything down after I was done using it, so maybe that helped.

Bench press 135x8, 185x4, 225x3, 275x2, 315x2, 335x1, 355x1, 375x1, 395x1

Lifted butt off bench a bit on that last one, but I'll take it.

Spotter had to intervene. The weight crushed me like a ton of bricks coming down, but came up nicely from the bottom and only stalled about halfway up. Was super tired from the previous single too, felt like my entire upper body had cramped up.

Push press 135x5, 165x2, 185x2, 205x2 - called it a day. Zero wrist pain today, which was great.

A bunch of sets for arms on various cable machines - curls, pushdowns, neutral-grip pulldowns.
