10 Pounds Short

Walked a round of golf yesterday. The humidity has definitely stepped up a few notches this week.

Today is the big day! Bench Max!!

Bench Press

  • 10×45#
  • 10×95
  • 5×135
  • 3×185
  • 2×215
  • 1×235
  • 1×255
  • 1×275
  • 1×285 (PR)
  • 1×290 (PR)

I decided to use some bigger jumps early in an attempt to be fresher later. Not sure if it was smart to throw away the warm-up sets I’ve pretty much been using every session for 4 months. When I got to 275 I felt like I came way too far down on my chest and had to grind out the rep. Then 285# was much better for the PR. 290 was a grinder, but I had to keep going. You’ll have to watch the video to see how I talked myself right out of 295 before I started.

Not the 300 I was hoping for, but I was able to add 15# to my previous best over the course of the program. I skipped the 3×10 drop sets and decided to do a push-up test.

100 HR Push-ups

My best is 5:04 from March of 2013!! I haven’t come close since according to my logs. My last attempts were 6:03 in October of 2015 and 7:25 a year ago. I started out with sets of 5s through about 45 when I started doing some doubles and triples. Then I did a whole bunch of quick singles in there somewhere. Tried to get back to doubles or triples, but resorted to singles again. Ended up at 5:18, which is the best I’ve done in a really long time. These get terrible so fast.

Accessory

  • 2×10 DB Bent-over Side Raises (35#)

Skipped the Tricep Rock-n-Rolls.

2 Minute Challenge

Bryan picked T2B, went first, and got 40. We both started with sets of 5 and I actually was able to get more of sets of them when I went. I, on the other hand, had to switch to singles like I always do when my T2B go, otherwise I would have had him. Came up one shy with 39! He now has a 2-1 series lead with the challenges.
