Bench Press

Bench today was standard. When I say standard I mean good.

Warm Up
Push Ups - 2 sets/12 reps.
Light Stretching
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 185lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/8 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 6 sets/1 rep/285lbs
*5 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 1 set/3 reps/225lbs, 5 sets/4 reps/225lbs.
*2 minutes rest after each set*

Core Work
Stability Ball Sit Ups - 4 sets/21 reps.

The core work is getting easier although my abs are sore for several days after doing sit ups this way. Right now I'm relaxing and enjoying a few raisin bagels with peanut butter. Yum!
