Overall training this week went very well.  Next week is the last heavy week before the Arnold.  Training the bench press 4x per week has its challenges though.  Warming up takes a bit longer due to the residual lactic acid buildup from the day before.  Its slight, but its enough to get me to take my time warming up.  Monday I am looking to do a paused single with 690.  That would put me 13 days out from competition, then you’ll see my training taper slightly at the end of the week.  Competition week, I’ll do a pseudo deload.  My last bench press day will be 2 days before the competition.  This isn’t normal for most bench pressers.  I’ve just found something that works very well for me.  I’ve been benching 4x per week for the last 4 years and have never looked back!
