Day 8

Heavy Bench Press today. It's hard not to want the same gains in Bench Press and Deadlift as I'm getting in Squats. I am still getting gains even if they aren't as amazing.

Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - bar/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 3 sets/4 reps/315lbs.
Bench Press - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/1 rep, 3 sets/1 rep/365lbs, 370lbs/1 rep.
Deadlifts - 225lbs/6 reps, 3 sets/4 reps/365lbs.

My butt came up on the last 365lbs Bench Press so I put on another 5lbs and really worked the technique. The pause was easily 3 seconds long. Everything is going in the right direction... UP!!!
