Bench Press in Gear

Second last training day in my Bench Shirt before the Nova Scotia Provincials. I have no idea where the power is coming from but DAMN I LIKE IT!!!

Warm Up
Light Stretching.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/10 reps, 315lbs/3 reps, 365lbs/1 rep (very nice).

Power Phase
Bench Press (Titan Fury sz 50 and wrist wraps) - 465lbs (3 board)/2 reps, 465lbs (2 board)/2 reps, 465lbs (1 board)/2 reps, 465lbs (to chest)/1 rep.
*no problems*

Pump Phase
Bench Press (with light bands) - 3 sets/4 reps/365lbs (310 to 330lbs), 2 sets/5 reps/365lbs (310 to 330lbs), 1 set/4 reps/385lbs (330 to 350lbs).

Upper Back Work
Dumbbell Rows - 3 sets/8, 10, 12 reps/105lbs.
Cable Lat Press Downs - 3 sets/12 reps/30kg.

My lovely wife helped me with my bench press today on Mothers Day. What a sweetheart!!! My son helped out by holding my boards. I have no doubt that I will achieve a huge personal best in two weeks with their help. FEELING STRONG!!!
