Bench Press

Benching in the garage tonight. The weather is great and the garage is nice and warm. Perfect for Bench Press.

Warm Up
Light Stretching.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/8 reps, 275lbs/4 reps, 315lbs/2 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 8 sets/1 rep/350lbs.
not very strong tonight but it's what I had. My Bench Press still seems to be suffering from the stomach bug I had last week.

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 6 sets/3 reps/315lbs.
even the pump phase felt heavy tonight. the last rep of the sixth set was a grind.

Extra Stuff
Cable Press Downs - 3 sets/12 reps/25kg.
Dumbbell Concentration Curls - 3 sets/8 reps/35lbs.

At the end of tonight's work out I noticed that my wife's winter tires have a hole in the middle of the rim that fits almost perfectly on my bar. I wonder what she will say about that? Nothing good I can imagine.
