Just the right amount of work here. All reps were not to failure, but close. There was only a few of the crew lifting today. Just my luck the 2 Bench Nazi's Brian & Dave were there. They don't let me get away with anything. As soon as Dave sees the slightest breach of tightness he tells me to reset. Doing so on the fly every 2 reps to 8 reps makes it seem like an eternity. Triceps and upper back were on fire after the last set.

I think 140 would have been good across the board. I haven't done over 5 reps for anything since probably last fall. Triceps felt like a California wildfire swept thru them but I survived. All reps were again 1 away from failure.

These actually were quite soothing and felt great at the end of the session. I think I did them right, as this was of course first time doing them. Only Dave on the crew has ever heard of these before. He said they are like a modified JM Press usually done with an EZ Curl Bar. Judging by JB's example vid, that sounds about right. I lowered the bar to about 6 inches above my Clavicles.

Brian joked that he was going to call me the Kazmanian Devil from now on.
