Bench Press

A nice warm day today meant that I could train in my garage. Its been all winter but it was like shaking hands with an old friend.

Warm Up
Light Stretching.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 135lbs/4 dynamic reps, 225lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/4 dynamic reps, 315lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press (with wrist wraps) - 5 sets/1 rep/375lbs.

Pump Phase
Bench Press (with chains) - 4 sets/6, 5, 5, 5 reps/225 + 130lbs chain.

Feeling good, feeling large. Benching was solid today. The first single felt like I could have managed a double. By the fifth set 375lbs felt quite heavy. So it should, I am now heading into uncharted territory.
