The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

Give that PR machine a raise. It's been working overtime lately.

Thanks Moe, your making good progress too. Even with a lighter bar than you expected.

Thanks BtB. Two more weeks, then some massive PRs!

Knock wood!

I'm psyched up already for tomorrow's deadlifts. I'm feeling really good, but I'm gonna be smart too. I want all the reps to be perfect. So probably no PRs, but I will hit a massive one in two weeks!

Thanks Fellas!

JB!! Today's benching was sneaky hard! I've never done speed benching before, but I figured going in it wouldn't be too hard as I bench pretty fast normally. Ah, no. It's hard! The rest times kill you, too. And mother of god, the curls were savage at the end!

warmups: usual shoulder and arm stuff, a little foam rolling quads too as they are still sore from squat day. Rolling pin does work too, btw JB. Thanks for that tip!

Speed bench:
12x 3x 185 1 min rest, mixed grips rotated normal, mid, close

BB Curls:
55x 25, 21

DB Curls:
13x 25 each arm
13x 31 each arm (this was one short of failure, and some serious cheating by the end)

Bicep and chest stretches to finish

First speed set, tried pausing and exploding up for most early sets:
second set, tried doing them more ballistic, but I don't like that as the bar path goes all over the place:
seventh set, pausing had gone out the window:
Last set, tried to pause a little, mixed results:

There you go. Harder than I expected, but upper body was totally pumped up by the end. Felt like Superman!

Deadlifts tomorrow, then I'm leaving in the afternoon for a weekend away in the mountains tubing with the kids and hot tubbing with the wife. I'll be back Sunday night ready to crush week 9!!

Ya, I hate speed work on bench - really thrashed my arms and joints and things I never knew I had.

Way to get it done Mike!
