More Squats and Bench Press Day 7.5 and 8

Yes, I know, weird. Today I was showing a future member of the Powerhouse the gym and of course I brought my gear. I couldn't let him work out by himself, could I?

Leg Swings and Stretching again. Feels great!
Squats - 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, (belt and knee sleeves) 315lbs/4 reps, 365lbs/2 reps, 405lbs/1 rep.

Tonight I also did some Bench Press.

Warm Up
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/10 reps, 315lbs/1 rep.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 5 sets/1 rep/335lbs.
*didn't time rest between sets*

Pump Phase
Bench Press (with light bands) - 4 sets/4 reps/275lbs to 305lbs, 2 sets/5 reps/275lbs to 305lbs.
*didn't time rest between sets*

Although the Bench Press was lighter than last week it was much more controlled than before. A good pause and solid drive to lock out. On a side note my lower back it feeling better. Stretching is really helping.
