Thanks Ravi!! Goal is 3PPS. Minimum really should be 300. Bench is just so unpredictable for me really.

A lot of good work in there Jim! You're still setting PR's so the program is doing its job! Congratz on the 265x2
Thanks Rich!! Ya, it's still training that will help me reach my goal. No complaints so far at all about the program. It's an honor to be on it.

I just think sometimes mentally, it's just not a good afternoon or session for us and it effects our big lift.

Anyway, enough rambling, your bench form looked solid, you will get reps 3 and 4 next time. Great work.
Nice incline work. I am sure you got teh pump in teh chesticles.
I certainly cannot disagree with this Big J. Many times it's possible to lose focus for whatever reason. It seems this game is like 90% mental and 10% physical. However, I am nowadays winning more of the mental battles than losing them. I do feel I am now more mentally strong than ever, especially after my first 2 meets. Yep, a less than stellar day it was.

Haha - indeed, I got the biggest pump I have ever had. Felt good.
