Bench Press

A bit of a sleep in after working late last night then into the SANCTUM for some Bench Press.

Warm Up
Push Ups - 2 sets/15 reps (very dynamic)
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/10 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 5 sets/1 rep/325lbs, 2 sets/1 rep/335lbs.
*enough rest after each set to recover*

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 3 sets/3 reps/265lbs, 3 sets/4 reps/265lbs.
*enough rest after each set to recover*

Upper Back Work
Dumbbell Rows - 85lbs/8 reps per side, 3 sets/8 reps per side/105lbs.

The bench press is feeling easier. The weights I handled today I wouldn't even attempted last year this time. Feeling great!!!
