Bench Press

I'm not impressed with today's performance. I am however, pleased that my back is feeling much better. My bursitis is back and I am unable to keep my arms tight when benching heavy. As soon as I bend my elbow an ache shoots through my right elbow and I loose control. Here's what happened today.

Warm Up - 6 minutes stationary bike.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/8 reps, 275lbs/4 reps.
3 Board Bench In Gear (loose shirt) - 315lbs/4 reps, 405lbs/2 reps, 405lbs/1 rep, 405lbs/1 rep, 455lbs/1 rep.

After this my elbow is throbbing. Now I'm sitting in the basement watching a movie and icing both elbows. At least my back will be ready for deadlifts of Friday.
