Notes:
You're probably mad that you didn't bench and do curls today.

I just benched on friday, so it probably wasn't optimal for me to bench today, but I wanted to start the new routine and decided to go for it.
I should have easily had my goal of 4 reps at 295, but I actually had a pretty serious "incident". The whole set didn't feel right. Starting from the first rep. And between the 3rd and 4th rep my left wrist folded inward and I dropped the barbell in a controlled manner to the safety bars. Never had this happen before. Kind of shook me up.

Enjoyed the volume. Found it to be fun. Looking forward to this new routine.
I have dubbed it the "Plus 4 Plan", because for each muscle group i increase the rep goal by 4, with each consecutive exercise. For example, chest: for the first exercise (bench) my goal is 4 reps. My second exercise (incline bench) my goal is 8 reps, 3rd exercise 12 reps, 4th exercise 16. The book is coming soon.
