Pretty solid session!

I wanted 325x3 paused, but failed 3rd rep on first set and didnt attempt it second set... i hit 325x3 paused last year when i was running the 4 sets of 3 paused. That was my highest tripple running that routine. Not too bad to hit 1 rep shy my first week of this cycle

Comp grip boards was different, since i ran POR boards for so long. Felt like they'll get a lot stronger as confidence builds.

Noticed again tonight that my back is the limiting factor in my bench. If i can keep it tight, its almost a guarantee the weight is going up. If i fail, its because my back loses tension and my shoulders pop out and i flare HARD. Maybe i'll try to incorporate some extra back work somehow. I'm hammering back hard on fridays now, so might be enough to bring it up? If not i'll have to squeeze more volume in on another day somehow...
