Third workout done……620 partial and a 590 full rep!!!

Jul 28, 2014

Third bench workout is done. Again a great workout by hitting a 2 board pr (NOTE this means nothing in the midst of training outside of being a pr, a gain. This is a full rep meet so that is what is important). Yes I used the same opening sentences as previous log but that is good when it is all positive!!!! Also some people may have missed last log so this is explaining where I come up with sets and numbers. I am using the 2014 Bench Worlds and 2013 Bench Nats as templates on what numbers to use. I am upping the high end sets by 5-15 pounds from the previous bests. I am referring to the third gear workouts of both previous meets as next week I will be referring to the 3rd workouts of those meets to dictate my workout.

This workout was great. I did a set with no boards and yes it was a little ugly however the next 2 workouts are all on technique and mechanics I will not focus on the weight except the weight I’ll be full repping at the meet.

I also finished up with a couple of raw sets. I am surprised that they went well since my tris were tired. Yes the butt is up but I am not in a meet and I was tired. The rest of the week leading into this workout was good. I did start squatting heavy in gear and deadlifting so I have to factor that into my bench workouts for workloads.

I have also posted my workouts leading into the bench.
