ME Bench Press

First heavy bench day leading to Bench Nationals and it was awesome!!!

Warm Up - Stationary Bike - 5 minutes.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps.
Three Board Press - 365lbs/3 reps, 405lbs/1 rep, 410lbs/1 rep.
*alternate the following*
Push Ups - 4 sets/10 reps.
Pull Up Negatives - 4 sets/6 reps.

It seems that I'm handling the pull up negatives much better and offering more resistance on the way down. I'm sure over time I'll be able to do a wide grip pull up or two. The push ups were way easy but they really work all the stabilizer muscles. Next week I'll drop down to a two board.
