Bench Press

Could not work out in my standard environments today. The gym I went to at least had a full rack but had a wooden floor. I was really concerned about the bench sliding around. The bench was crap and no where near legal. Further more the bar was about 33mm thick. Like holding onto a pop can. All that said I still got down and hit some Bench Press.

Warm Up
Light Stretching.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/4 dynamic reps, 315lbs/3 reps, 315lbs/1 dynamic rep.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 335lbs/2 reps, 365lbs/1 reps, 4 sets/1 rep/345lbs.

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 6 sets/275lbs/5, 5, 3, 5, 3, 4 reps.

Support Work
Lat Press Downs - 3 sets/12 reps/65lbs.
Seated Machine Flies - 3 sets/6 reps/250, 250, 300(stack).

Not a strong work out but I dealt with the problems in the gym and still punished myself. Not bad. I'll see how things went next work out.
