Bench Press

Went out for all I could eat wings tonight. In order to handle the guilt I had to work out. Seeing as I did squats yesterday the logical choice was bench press for a second time this week.
Warm Up
Push Ups - 2 sets/12 reps.
Bench Press - 2 sets/12 reps/135lbs, 1 set/6 reps/135lbs + 110lbs chain.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 2 sets/1 rep/225lbs + 110lbs chain, 2 sets/1 rep/235lbs + 110lbs chain, 2 sets/1 rep/245lbs + 110lbs chain, 1 set/1 rep/255lbs + 110lbs chain.
*3 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 3 sets/6 reps/225lbs, 3 sets/6 reps/235lbs.
*3 minutes rest after each set*

We took our youngest out to dinner so I didn't get a chance to eat all I could eat. Better that way I guess. The Power Phase felt good and heavy like it should. The chain kept the lock outs from being too easy. Add the weight and chains on the last set and I benched 365lbs, YeHa!!!
