Bench Press

Although I started late tonight my bench was really good. Set up was solid. I gripped the bar tight, kept my elbows tucked and exploded off my chest. All the reps were routine.

Warm Up
Stationary Bike - 5 minutes (harder level than usual).
Push Ups - 2 sets/12 reps.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/8 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 3 sets/1 rep/305lbs, 5 sets/1 rep/315lbs.
*3 minutes rest*

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 1 set/5 reps/255lbs, 5 sets/4 reps/255lbs.
*3 minutes rest*

It was 2130hrs when I finished so I decided to end it there. Lately sleep is more important than reps. Night, night.
