Ahhhh bench is shaping up……

Jul 26, 2015

Well I am posting 2 workouts here , July 16th and July 25th. Well the preceding bench workout was awful, that was the one I did back to back bench workouts but these workouts are more like the me I am expecting in the gym. The first workout was great, a great rebound the second I was off track with technique. I recovered by my 3rd set but my ass was way up but I’ll have that nailed down. I went from 585 for 2 to a 2 board (previous workout) to a rough single in the following workout which made me sick. I recovered greatly on the next set.

I also, in the second workout ,tried on a Super katana and had felt good in it. Granted it was my 9th set in when I put it on I still enjoyed the optimism it left me. I did only one set with it to a 3 board so next week I may do 2 sets BUT not over-train my upper body by adding sets because of it.

Anyways for my assistance I added some front press military and continued with behind the necks. For tris my rack presses are going great (the bar is about 5” above my chest start spot). I didn’t do back because my schedule was messed up because of squatting at Brown’s gym which I rearranged my schedule so I could train there.


Here is the video for the two weeks.
