Bench Press

Tonight's training was a bit lighter than usual. My lower back is giving me some grief so I didn't want to push it. But, I did want to press some weight tonight.

Warm Up
Foam Rolling.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/8 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 5 sets/1 rep/335lbs.
*3 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 5 sets/5 reps/245lbs, 1 set/6 reps/245lbs.
*2 minutes rest after each set*

Core Work
Ab Sling Knee Ups - 3 sets/15 reps.

Lat Work
Cable Press Downs - 3 sets/12 reps/35kg.

Currently my lower back feels better but I'm sure it'll be tight tomorrow morning. I will be 40 years old in less than a month. Maybe I should slow down a bit and take it easy... NAAAAAA!!!
