Speed Bench

My elbows are killing me. Yesterday's swimming aggravated the bursitis in my elbows. I don't have a serious problem, just once and a while. I thought about ending my work out early but toughed it out and finished. Here's how it went.

Speed Bench Press - 10 sets, 3 reps, 215lbs.
Inclined Dumbbell Press - 3 sets, 6 reps, 80/100/100lbs.
Dips - 3 sets, 6 reps, 50lbs assistance.
Supported Rows - 4 sets, 6 reps, 90/135/170/180lbs.
Standing Military Press - 3 sets, 6 reps, 135/135/155lbs.

Now that I resting my elbows feel much better. I think it was a combination of the cold pool water and the push ups. I'll be smarter next time.

Saw some of your lifts on Iron Scene (Inzer's sight). Your 588 in November looked like 600+ would have happened. Glad to see you use the old style of lifting (squat - step out with the weight, bench - with a pause & feet flast, deadlift - just pick it up). Dude, I can't believe you squat *that* deep! I bet 600#'s easy if you squatted a little shallower! (Looked at least 2" deep!) Form in all lifts looked spot on! Nice work!
