Very nice lifting Ken. I couldn't make max width work for me as I have dinosaur arms but it's definitely better if you can make it happen.

Thanks, Swede. Given the pec DOMS I've got today (I haven't gotten pec DOMS from benching in awhile) and the speed I had coming off the bottom, I'm thinking that this will definitely help my bench shoot to higher levels. I just have to be careful and keep the shoulder healthy.

You know, I think I had that "a-ha" moment on the warmups today, when I had to PULL the bar to me to even get it to my chest -- I had enough of a stretch reflex to keep it a few inches off my chest. I'm really hoping this gets me to the big four-oh-oh mark by next summer.

Thanks Big T. I freely admit that I first got interested in Anello when I saw that DW was running it. I am not ashamed to admit that I'll steal other people's ideas and try 'em out for myself!

500 DL is in your sights, Ken.

And strong bench session, buddy!

Mixing Squats and Pressing - Oh My!


Today I'm trying to shoehorn both a DE Squat and Press/DE Bench into a single session. I've got less than hour before the wife tells me I've got to be on the road, so we'll see where it gets me. I warmed up with some leg swings then went with:

Zercher Squats (warmup): 45/5 45/5 95/5 135/5
Zercher Squats (speed): 185/2 205/2 205/2 205/2 205/2
Zercher Squats (partials): 275/3 - video forthcoming
Standing Press (warmup): 45/5 95/3
Standing Press (5@65%): 130/5
Standing Press (5@75%): 150/5
Standing Press (5+@85%): 170/9 Rep PR
Speed bench: 205/1

And that's it. The squats felt really good and wore me out, but I did not have time to do a proper bench warmup. Note to self: never ever try to go straight into a 200lb bench without a proper warmup. I didn't injure myself, but my shoulder did yell at me "what the fark?!". At that point I decided discretion was the better part of valour, so I ended it there.
So I am now off the grid until monday, when I will smash some deadlifts.
