What a sh*tty day. I went in for a CT scan (cancer checkup) and had an allergic reaction to the isotope. They kept me in there for 3 hours without food. I got home and felt horrible. I think I'll save the speed bench for tomorrow. grrrrrrr...

Alright, I'm bouncing back from yesterday's ordeal. Will have to find an alternative to CT scans. Anyhow, today was a dynamic effort bench day. I warmed up with some med ball tosses, then worked on some triples up to 185, which is about 60% of my one-rep max. Most of these sets were done with a mini band stretched between my wrists to practice pulling the bar apart.

Bench press:
135 x 3
165 x 3 x 3 sets
175 x 3 x 3 sets
185 x 3 x 2 sets

Unstable bench:
185 x 8 x 3 sets

One arm standing DB OHP:
45 x 5
55 x 5
65 x 5
70 x 5

Cable lateral raises:
Light weight x 10 x 2 sets

Cable reverse grip curls:
Light weight x 15 x 2 sets

Thanks. It felt nice to bounce back from yesterday. My doc said next time I should take some anti-histamine or possibly steroids before going into the scan. Sounds like fun.
