Week 2 off to a great start with 610 being handled…….

Jul 19, 2014

Second 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). 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 second gear workouts of both previous meets as next week I will be referring to the 3rd workouts of those meets to dictate my workout. I am paying close attention to how I feel during and after so I don’t over train. You will notice last week I did 10 sets on the bench but nothing else so to offset that overload I did ZERO raw sets after the shirt BUT did 3 sets of incline that I have not done for over 3 weeks.

Unlike last week I cut some reps down so I can add a set with heavier weight. A total of 5 shirted sets ending with a one board set which went smooth. Also worth mentioning the one board set almost didn’t happen because left hand was numb I was concerned. I managed to rush into the set before additional time impeded the set. If I can hit a weight with a numb feeling then NO doubt I can do it with no obstacles.

As mentioned last week I will give post my arm workout from last week which was done last Tuesday.
