OK, great day today, but let me tell you, RAM after main bench sets.....NOT so easy! Whoa.

MikeM's Linear Plan week 1 day 2

1x 230 pause
3x 10x 185

Last 10x 185:

2x 275 RAM:
2x 275 RAM - YouTube
First 235 RAM:
6x 235 RAM - YouTube
15x 75 OHP did't expect much going in, but wasn't too bad:
15x 75 - YouTube

Good stuff all in all. Not sure bout the RAM placement on my arm though. I had it up high in the videos as I started out that way, but it made setting up kinda hard and felt like I was touching too high too, not sure aboutthat though. I lowered to just past elbows on later sets, but that felt a little goofy too. So, is there a rule of thumb on these things as to where they go on your arm? Or just play with it and see?

Also, judging by this workout, I would say my triceps are not really a weakness in my bench? But then power off my chest isn't really a weakness either. My thinking around designing this program to alternate between working the upper and lower portions of each lift was so that I could see where I am weak. So where is my weakness on bench? Anbody know? JB?

If I fail, it's usually about 3-4 inches up does that mean I just need to keep working both upper and lower equally?

Still, rolling along. That's good.
Great work Mike! Strong stuff all around!!!
