MAX EFFORT BENCH PRESS

Walk to gym

Bench press
POR grip
Bar for 2 sets
60kgs x 8
80kgs x 5
100kgs x 2
115kgs x 1
125kgs x 1
135kgs x 1
Add 3 board
150kgs x 3
157.5kgs x 1
165kgs x 1
167.5kgs x 1 PB with stricter form and this grip. Was losing form so rather than ugly up another rep, I called it there.
Add slingshot and removed boards
140kgs for 2 sets of 6 (+1 rep over last time)

Sled work outside in the blazing sunshine
Sled +20kgs for 20 face pulls and then 20 overhead tricep extensions

Did the above twice in a row with no rest and was beyond pumped. Great combo.

So not quite the 170kgs+ I was looking for but a good session nonetheless. Felt a bit slow on the full range stuff but having gone heavy on Monday, this was no surprise. Tried to stay tight onto the boards instead of crashing them as I used to. A tip from Mike Wolf (Westside 800+ bencher before the multi ply era) stuck in my head: imagine there's an egg on the board and try not to break it. This combined with the narrower grip made the exercise much harder. Didn't get much footage today as my camera kept running out of memory but will post the two sets I did manage to capture later on. First I am taking Mini off for her first ever swimming lesson
