Workout Time: 100 minutes

Workout Grade: A-

Performed my first ever heavy squat set with a belt. 545 felt easy. Think I would have a solid chance at 650 right now, or at least something in that ballpark.

Hit my first big bench PR in quite a while. Had a few reps in the tank, but my back was cramping. Eccentrics were quick. My bench form is improving, thanks to a few tips from Roger Ryan. Still far too inconsistent though.

All in all a good session. I entered fatigued from the heat, with no motivation. Left feeling energetic and triumphant.

235 x 2
325 x 1 - Added belt

Bench Press - w/Slingshot
