Thanks Ravi! Add board presses to the list of things to learn! Damn things just feel so awkward.

Good day today anyway though. Main bench work was EASY. Bench is back on track again I think. We'll see.

JB Power Plan week 8

Bench, easy:
2x 260 (PR)
1x 275 (ties PR)

2 Board, not so easy :
1x 275, 295
0x 305 (lost it on the way down for chrissakes!)

Pause Bench:
6x 205, 195, 185, 175 (try this as a finisher as a finisher someday!)
ss w/ 5x 15x 150 Lat Pulldowns

2x 260, could have tripled it easily:
1x 275
1x 295:
0x 305:
6x 205:

So well pleased with my bench overall.

Not sure about board presses though. I normally lower fairly quickly, but I just don't do that when the board is there for some reason. I lower like an old man easing into a hot bath and then I get off line and in trouble. They also make my biceps sore. I don't really feel them in my triceps at all.

JB, I think if we're going to use them again, we should either do them first and warmup using them to get a groove with them. Or lower the weight and increase the reps a bit.

Anyway, there you go. I love that 275 was easy! Not letting anything spoil that thought.

Also, I am just buried in grad school stuff at the moment. I will get around in logs later in the week. Sorry about not keeping up. Just the nature of the beast at the moment.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
