Close Grip Barbell Bench Presses
Swiss Bar Strict Presses
29 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: This week is going to be a bit different in that I'm trying to make sure my press day and squat day are giving me enough of a break from last week. Goal was to hit a solid double and my aim was 5lbs under my best. Reasoning was that I'm not feeling that I'm at my best for the benching with the volume leading up to the top sets but also that I wanted to make sure I got it with a little in the tank. I've done 360lbs for a double but I'm fairly certain the spotter yanked it off my chest for the second rep. It was good to get this weight and I was tempted to try more. In hindsight, I should have tried as I ended up waiting a good 15 minutes or so to use a rack for swiss bar pressing. Did a mini warm-up before going into it. Felt better than last time, so I knew I had a PR in me for these. Lean back and hips in that last set but whatever. Push-ups to finish the day.
