Maximal strength bench day today. It felt good to move some heavy weights today.

Bench press-
45x5
135x5
225x5
255x3
275x2
295x2
295x2
295x1

Mid grip bench, ring fingers on the rings-
225x3
225x5
225x8

Wide grip paused, explosive bench-
205x5
205x5
205x5

I need to get chalk. 295 is the official slipping point for my crappy bar, and I can't get a solid grip for more than 1 rep. There aren't many things worse than knowing you have more reps in you, but having to stop because your focus is on your grip and not on keeping your body tight like it should be.

I think I'm going to do more sessions like this, starting heavy, then getting into some variations and more explosive speed work. I need to train a lot, and hitting too much heavy work is keeping me from being able to do all the other training I need to do.
