I failed on 335 fat bar + chains floor press last week. Killed it this week. All the accessories are up from last week, too. I attribute this a little bit to strength gains but a lot to finding the groove: I haven't done assistance exercises in years, so my body's re-learning the movements. I decreased the weight on the sled and increased sets. I did this because I've been getting worse with 105, not better. It was too heavy a weight to start with.

Psyched about the PR! I was disappointed when I couldn't lift all the chains last week (they have 14 total sets; I used 12 sets + 20 lbs. in weights for the 315 press). When I told the trainer "I want to get all the chains next week," he said, "just focus on adding weight and maybe getting all the chains some time in the future." He was being nice and trying to tell me to be happy with steady progress, not unrealistic benchmarks. But I wanted to bench all 14 sets today, and I did it.
