Notes:
The last couple days I've been a bit under the weather. I woke up last night with a sinus infection and a general achey feeling. Took advil all day to help with the symptoms. Anyway, went into this workout feeling like shit.
After the first couple sets on bench I felt real shakey and weak. I almost called it but I just pushed through.
I'm glad I did, it turned into a pretty good session.
Hit my bench goal, despite my issues. The last rep was a slow mo grinder. Had I had more sense I probably would have got nervous.
Decided to use my new versa grips on my rows this cycle, as opposed to no grip assistance at all. Also, after watching a bearded beast video on rows, put an emphasis on power. This started on my 2 warm up sets. Where I would normally do them slow and controlled, I focused on explosiveness and power. This helped prime me for the working set. I was pleased with the result. I think I had more in the tank, but I had broke last weeks record by 5 reps and didn't feel the need to push it.
