JB'S OLD SCHOOL TAKE 2 SEMESTER 2 BENCH ME

Did not have a good day today. It kinda got off on the wrong foot when Mario, one of team mentors, told me "Jim, go over there". He was telling me to use the other bench where the girls were benching. Now, don't get me wrong, normally I love benching with them as they have taught me alot and I like them just as much, but I have been on a roll on the main bench (where the big boys bench) and I really like the bar better they were using. Perhaps some superstition, but it's not crazy if it works. In fact, all my best benching has been done on that bench with that bar. I guess I am also a bit upset at myself for not saying something to the effect to Mario that I wanted to bench there. Nonetheless, I just thought that it was kinda rude and arrogant to tell me to "go over there", especially when I have been benching there for at least a month now. I know why he did so - it's because I am the weakest bencher on the crew and it's likely a pain in the butt removing plates. Too bad tho, as next time I will say something.

I left the gym today unsatisfied, grumpy, growly, snappy, and snarly.

Logically, I should have had 300 today as last week as I did 300 to 1 board without too much difficulty. But, since when is lifting logical. Too many intangibles. The 245 triples felt quite heavy and it shouldn't. The board work did not feel heavy at all - I even slowed it down to normal speed as last week I kinda dive bombed them. Another factor in the miss was likely that I just didn't have enough gas left after Friday's Back Bitch session. That thing really takes everything out of you in under 2 minutes. Body fuel is precious on a cut. However, lower back rehab is the priority right now.

Additionally, I couldn't keep my tightness today. On the 2nd miss (Vid) the bar went forward while on my chest, thus putting me out of my groove and dooming the lift. Grrr.

245 X3

Your elbows were out Jim, got to bring them in some. I am sure that session has everything to do with the back work the previous day.

Agreed. I also thought you should bring the bar out further and then press back not up. Elbows in will help with the second point. You definitely have that press with better technique.

Oh man, that was close Jimbo! I think LtL is exactly right. Only thing I would add is it doesn't look like your legs were very tight on the way down and then you tried to tighten them hard on the way up. It helps me if they are tight all the way through the lift. Maybe you were doing that, but it didn't seem like it.

Regardless, you're going to hit that very soon! Awesome stuff. 300 bench right around the corner.

I left the gym today unsatisfied, grumpy, growly, snappy, and snarly.

Thanks JB & Al! I agree wholeheartedly. There is a perfect groove or position for me - I just wasn't able to find it that day like I did the last few weeks. This was the first time I have ever attempted 300 full ROM (PR is currently 285 and that was on the ugly side). If history is any indication, I will be able to clean up the form and remain tight on 300+ in the coming weeks. I remember the first time attempting 275 and above, as form quickly broke down then too. Good to know it is not a question of strength tho.

I will work on the form points you both have suggested. Your advice is priceless to me.

Thanks Mike! I think my feet remained planted. Perhaps my leg drive mad eit look that way? I will definitely make note of your point tho and be more conscious of it next time. Thanks so much for your input.
