After hitting 3 reps with 385 lb last week for a 3RM, I decided to go for 400 lb x 2 for a 2RM.

Tried it today, but ended up missing on the 2nd rep because of my back slipping on the grip-tape+duct-tape enhanced bench. FRAK SAKES! Pretty sure some skin from the back of my neck scraped onto the grip tape during the slide.

I was thinking about trying it again, but went with a conservative 390 lb for 2 reps instead. Changed shirts to help minimize any chances of slipping again. I did notice that my right foot was sliding on the ground during the 2nd rep.
