  • 280 x 1
  • 340 x 1
  • 395 x 2 * PR!
    • Wore a thin, slick shirt during warm ups. Felt like my body would slide inside the shirt during my PR set, and felt too lazy to go upstairs to grab a new shirt so I just benched topless. Back wasn't sweaty yet. Gave me an opportunity to see what it was like to bench without a shirt on the Thompson Fat Pad.

Reverse Grip Bench Press

  • 320 x 3,3
    • Still not used to the touch and go presses. Felt difficult reversing direction right away instead of pausing.

    • Wanted 8 reps, but on the last rep my left arm couldn't keep up with my right and missed. NEX TIME. Still good enough for a PR.
