Squats and Bench Press

Training was brutal today. Very warm and it was raining. The humidity in the Powerhouse was off the scale.

Warm Up
Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.

Working Sets
Squats (with belt) - 6 sets/3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3 reps/ 357lbs.

On the seventh set of eight sets my felt a "POP" in my right knee. The distraction caused me to drop like stone into the rack. Squats are now complete. I don't think there is any problem. There is no pain and no swelling. Time for Bench Press.

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

Working Sets
Bench Press - 4 sets/2 reps/315lbs, 4 sets/2 reps/325lbs.

The Bench Press is slowly coming back. The last set of Bench Press was difficult but much better than previous attempts. Rest up for the week end then back into action on Monday.
