Bench Press

I may be pushing a bit too hard. Training was going well today until I decided to go up in weight. Then, everything started to fall apart. I managed to hold on and live through a really good work out. Very demanding. I also found my triceps are my weak point in the Bench Press..

Warm Up
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/10 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - All singles... 355, 355, 355, 360, 360 miss, 360 miss, 355, 355, 355lbs miss.
Pure chaos as you can see. I noticed my elbows flaring terribly through out all the lifts.

Pump Phase
Bench Press with Titan RAM - 6 sets/4 reps/355lbs.
*no idea about rest, just wanted to get through this*

Triceps Work
Cable Extensions - 4 sets/12 reps/40kg.
OH Plate Ext for stretch - 2 sets/12 reps/45lbs.

My schedule this week was chaotic and being on a diet I'm sure doesn't help either. This week I'll get my head in order to lift heavy.
