Bench/Squat Day

Today was a load of benching and squatting for a change!! Bench has been put on maintenance right no due to really increasing volume and frequency for my deadlift, I am really enjoying the current setup cos benching is easily my least favourite of the big 3. Anyways I got a fair amount of work done before switching to SSB Box squats, these were hell on my back (in a good way) and worked me good. I spent a lot of time digging knots out of my glute med and hip flexors, its nice not to have a constant ache there right now!

Bench/Squat Day 19/5/13

Bench Press

2x10 77.5kg
2x8 82.5kg
2x6 87.5kg
2x4 92.5kg

30kg Chaos SSB Box Squats No Handles

1x1 80kg
1x1 95kg
1x1 102.5kg
1x1 107.5kg
5x4 70kg
4x3 77.5kg
2x2 102.5kg
1x6 60kg

So the way I have been using the SSB lately is to hold it out by where the rings would be instead of using the handles.When I use the handles and hit depth my arms rest on my thighs and I think it helps me fire out of the hole. Gripping the bar wide really makes you work, if you donít stay tight you eat floor!
