Bench Press

Benching at the 14 Wing Powerhouse today with my good friend JT. Today was my last heavy day of benching before tapering before the Eastern Canadians. Eventhough I'm still getting over a cold everthing went quite well.

Warm Up
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 135lbs/12 reps (NG), 225lbs/10 reps, 315lbs/3 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 365lbs/1 rep (no wrist wraps), 365lbs/1 rep (wrist wraps), 2 sets/1 rep/365lbs MISSED BOTH.
*enough rest to chit-chat*

Pump Phase
Bench Press (with Titan RAM) - 6 sets/3 reps/375lbs.
*enough rest to chit-chat*

Other Good Stuff
WG Lat Pull Downs - 3 sets/8 reps/180, 200, 210lbs.
Cable Triceps Ext - 3 sets/12 reps/50kg.
OH Single Arm Dumbbell Ext (stretching) - 3 sets/10 reps/30lbs.

Spent about 2 1/2 hours in the gym today. I LOVE IT!!!. The Power Phase of trining today was mixed feelings. The first successful 365lbs Bench Press had a good sticking point but I still managed to press it. The second 365lbs with wrist wraps was spectacular. No sticking point, good pause on my chest, and I smoked it!!! I would really like to duplicate what ever I did at the competition :-)
