Bench Press

Today's work out was similar to yesterday's in that I'm lifting heavier to accomidate for the up in coming competition. I'm very pleased with the added raw strength this routine is giving me.

Warm Up
Stationary Bike - 5 minutes.
Push Ups - 2 sets/12 reps.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/6 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 3 sets/1 rep/285lbs, 295lbs/1 rep, 305lbs/1 rep, 315lbs/1 rep, 325lbs/1 rep.
*5 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 6 sets/4 reps/225lbs.
*2 minutes rest after each set*

I worked late last night and didn't get to bed until midnight. This morning I was up at 0630hrs to help with my kids. By the last few sets I was feeling pretty drained. Tomorrow is a day of rest than back at it on Thursday with Deadlifts. I think I'll go 3 sets/365lbs, 405lbs, 455lbs, 475lbs, 495lbs. YeHa!!!
