Well, today is the day of redemption for my sneakers. After Tuesday's deadlift fiasco, my sneakers pled for a second chance, which I gave them. I have never done any benching with shoes on, stupid as that may sound, but today I gave it a shot. What do you know? I had more leg drive, lol.

The last time I benched 240 was like 10 months ago when I tested my max, which ended up being 245. I cannot imagine where I would be with bench if a) I always benched with shoes on, and b) if I didn't lose 4 months due to my deltoid injury. Onward and upward, I say!

I also adjusted my grip a bit wider, like 3 inches wider.





Thank you, come again
