My Bench Sucks

ME Bench day. The title says it all.

A1. Bench Press

8 x 45#
2 x 5 x 95#
2 x 3 x 135#
2 x 3 x 185#
1 x 215#
1 x 235#
1 x 255#

The 255# was a garage gym PR, but it's far from my actual 1 Rep PR. I know I am not concentrating as much on it for the next meet, but man, I want to at least bring something respectable. I'm hoping I can bring at least 275# as an opener.

B1. 1-Armed Rows

4 x 6 x 90#

C1. OH Push Press

1 x 8 x 45#
2 x 5 x 95#
1 x 3 x 135#
12 x 175# (3,3,3,3)

175# for push presses is better than I've been doing. I'm definitely starting to feel the few months off from serious training this week.

D1. Internal/External Rotations (prehab)

3 x 8 x small band

E1. Prowler Finishers

3 x 40yds, 50# loaded on, 1 minute rest

Overall, I got through the training session, and it felt fine, but it was kind of an ego hit with the benching. Taking so much time off was D-U-M.

Jessica hit her bench really well today, and got 155# with all 3 meet calls legally. Which means I better get my bench to 310# quick- my rule is to be twice as strong as her at all times, dammit.
