  • 350lbs: 5,5,5,5,5

Bench Press

  • 240lbs: 5,5,5,5,5


  • Tried a new way to warm up; did 1 rep during my last warm up set with a higher weight than my work set
  • Last warm up set for squat was 365lbs x 1
  • Last warm up set for bench press was 265lbs x 1
  • This makes the main set (which is a lower weight) feel much easier
