Bench Press and Squats

Numbers are still low but training hard will carry me past my previous bests. Sounds simple enough. Yesterday I did Bench Press late in the evening. I finished up at about 2200hrs. Here's how it went.

Light Stretching.
Bench Press - 2 sets/12 reps/135lbs, 2 sets/8 reps/185lbs, 2 sets/8 reps/225lbs, 4 sets/6 reps/275lbs, 2 sets/8 reps/135lbs.
Rev Grip Barbell Curls - 3 sets/12 reps/45lbs.
Various Other Curls.

Still a long way to go to get the numbers I had before the surgery.

Today right after getting home from work I put on my work out clothes and went out into the garage for some much needed heavy Squats.

Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - 2 sets/8 reps/bar, 2 sets/8 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/3 reps, 315lbs/3 reps.

At this point I pulled on my SBD knee sleeves and grabbed my belt.

Squats - 405lbs/1 rep, 4 sets/1 rep/455lbs.

Take off the belt.\

Squats - 2 sets/4, 6 reps/315lbs.

455lbs felt really good. It made me work a bit but it wasn't overly heavy. The numbers please me.

Supper time and also time to enjoy the gains.
