Speed Bench Press

I goofed today. The work out was really good but I didn't allow for enough warm up and now my elbows are throbbing. I've had a history of bursitis in my elbows but it hasn't bothered me for some time, until today. Here's how things went.

Warm Up - Nil (I worked late last night and slept in this morning).
Speed Bench - warm up set, 10 sets/3 reps/225lbs.
*super set the following*
Inclined Dumbbell Press - 4 sets/10 reps/85lbs.
Pull Up Negatives - 4 sets/6 reps.
Fat Bar Barbell Curls - 4 sets/10 reps/95lbs.

I'm really pumped right now and typing is a challenge. Tomorrow is a rest day then Speed Squats / Deadlifts on Thursday.

yeah I know the feeling in the elbows my friend.. mine are more from after wearing my bench shirt. as I like a super tight shirt I wear a size 46 super katana, and have a 52 inch chest. So some of my Tendens get brused up a bit.
