Bench Press

Mixed emotions after today's training. Everything was going well until it wasn't going well.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching
Bench Press - 2 sets/8 reps/70kg, 2 sets/6 reps/110kg, 150kg/3 reps, 160kg/2 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 3 sets/1 rep/167.5kg, 167.5kg miss, 167.5kg miss again.
The first single was great! Good pause and legal lift. The first miss I was concentrating too much on the pause. The second miss I caught the bar under the pins. Good place to continue on with the Pump Phase.

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 6 sets/4 reps/140kg.
Last set was for 5 reps

The numbers are getting better. I should focus on the press and not on the pause. Work on getting my numbers up before concentrating on the pause. The strength is getting better.
