Bench Press

Yesterday's Bench Press was my strongest in quite some time. As time goes on I'm feeling much more stable and comfortable on the bench. I read an article the other day. It talked about how the Bench Press is a "mature" lift. It takes time to build a Good Bench Press. I believe it.

Warm Up
Light Stretching.
Bench Press - 135lbs/16 reps, 225lbs/10 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press (no wraps) - 7 sets/1 rep/350lbs.
*3 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Bench Press (with light bands) - 6 sets/6 reps/350lbs (270lbs to 300lbs).
*3 minutes rest after each set*

I was working out at work yesterday and at this point of my work out I had to call it quits or I was going to be late. A really good work out and well on my way towards my goal of Bench Pressing 400lbs this year.
Next week Friday (26 April) I have a Bench Press competition in Shearwater Nova Scotia. My goal is to improve on my best classic competition bench of 160kg. 165kg sounds good.
