Speed Bench

I'm feeling great today. There isn't so much stress in my life and now I can concentrate on everything I like / Love. Today was speed bench day and my technique was really working for me.

Bench Press - bar/12 reps, 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/6 reps.
Speed Bench - 5 sets/2 reps/245lbs, 5 sets/2 reps/275lbs.
Preacher Curls - 3 sets/12 reps/85lbs.
Cable Press Downs - 80lbs/12 reps, 90lbs/12 reps, 100lbs/12 reps.

I decided to try the press downs instead of extensions. The angle this works is much more similar to benching than doing extensions. I'll do them more often.
