Bench Press

Had a short amount of time before work today to hit the 17 Wing Strength Club for some Bench Press.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Bench Press - 75kg/12 reps, 75kg/6 reps, 115kg/10 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 4 sets/1 rep/165kg.

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 6 sets/6 reps/127.5kg (varying grip).

You can do thousands of reps and then finally learn something. On my last two reps of the second last set I finally felt my lats and leg drive engage. I felt AWESOME!!! On the last set I was able to repeat the process. It really felt like I was benching from my feet, through my arch and lats, and finally with my shoulders and triceps. Hopefully this wasn't a one off.
