Bench Press

Last heavy day of heavy training before Nationals. My Bench Press has not gained any but I should be in for a small competition PB.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Bench Press - 65kg/12 reps, 105kg/6 reps, 145kg/2 reps.

Power Phase
Bench Press - 2 sets/1 rep/165kg (long pause), 170kg/1 rep (touch and go), 175kg/miss, 2 sets/1 rep/165kg (long pause).

Pump Phase
Bench Press - 4 sets/4 reps/125kg.

165kg seems like a good second attempt. Maybe one more day of easy lifts before Nationals just to keep things in motion.

Attempts at Nationals will be as follows,

Squat - 215/227.5/230kg.
Bench Press - 160/165/167.5kg.
Deadlift - 250/265/272.5kg.

It's show time!
