Equipped Bench and Deadlifts

On Wednesday last week I managed to get to the Strength Club for some Equipped Bench Press. The gang was all there and so was my cold. I still haven't gotten over my cold and it certainly effected my training.

Light Stretching.
Bench Press - 70kg/12 reps, 70kg/12 reps, 120kg/6 reps, 160kg/1 rep, 165kg/1 rep.
Equipped Bench Press - 220kg/3 board/2 reps, 230kg/2 board/2 reps, 230kg/1 board/2 reps.

At this point my head feels like it would explode. I'm pleased with these numbers and I would like 230kg to be my opener. Now to get it to my chest.

Today I am still not feeling 100% but I have to get some Deadlifts done. Since my Deadlift has been a bit of a concern I just wanted to pull my opener 250kg.

Leg Swings and Stretching.
Deadlifts - 70kg/6 reps, 70kg/6 reps, 120kg/4 reps, 220kg/1 rep, 250kg/1 rep, 170kg/6 reps, 170kg/6 reps.

With my goal accomplished I did a couple of Pump Phase sets and called it quits. I am feeling better and I expect I will feel normal sometime this week.
