Bench Press

My hand is gradually feeling better. I've been on holidays with my family so no training. Today I got back under the bar.

Light Stretching.
Bench Press - 2 sets/8 reps/135lbs, (put on wrist wraps) 225lbs/8 reps, 2 sets/1 rep/225lbs, 315lbs/4 reps, 4 sets/2, 1, 1, 2 reps/335lbs.
Dumbbell Hammer Curls - 35lbs/12 reps, 40lbs/12 reps, 40lbs/12 reps.

It still hurts to hold the weight in my hand. Also, my pressing power has dropped considerably in the last 6 weeks. However, 335lbs for a double is a good place to start. I will be pressing 4 plates again soon.
