    Last week was a "deload" week for me. Or supposed to be anyway. I lifted in a charity event and ended up benching 350.
    Figured it wasnt really worth posting.
    I was however back in today for what turned out to be a great session.
    warm up
    barx10
    135x5
    225x3
    275x3
    315x1
    365x1 3 board
    405x1 4 board.
    Got into shirt
    480x2. about an inch from touching on the second. Both good presses.
    So I deceded to take some more weight and make sure to touch to see where I stand.
    545x1. Got it down pretty good, no real problem to touch. Press was good. Got back on me a bit in the middle, but I got it back and locked out.
    This is a pr for me. It was good to take to see where I stand with the weight. I think I have a little more in me. But on the bright side, I still have a month and a half to get stronger, which I plan to do

    Raw max is around 350-365, shirt max is probably 550-565

    I have been slacking a bit. the last 2 weeks I had my head up my ass. Both training days I worked up to 545 and missed it.
    Ill fill in last week but it looked a lot like the week before so Im not going to go crazy with 2 weeks ago.
    barx10
    135x10
    225x5
    275x2
    315x1
    365x1 4 board
    405x1 4 board
    got in shirt
    495x1 close to touching
    545 couldnt touch, kept bringing the bar down high.
    decided to take 570 to get it down and tweeked my wrist. so I shut it down.
    Not a great day.

    So I lifted yesterday (Tuesday) because the Europa was this weekend and no one was at the gym Sunday. So heres how that went.

    barx10
    135x5
    225x3
    275x3
    315x2
    405x1 5 board
    455x1 5 board
    got in shirt
    495x1 2 board
    515 touched and pressed strong. This is going to be my opener. Im very confident in handling this so it should be an easy opener to start my day.
    Assuming 515 goes as it should, Ill jump to 545 and take my third depending on how that goes.

    Im reviving this post from the dead.
    Shortly after the meet I had been getting ready for, I took what I thought would be a short break, which turned into a few months, then a few years.
    For the last maybe 2 years Ive been back in the gym, and the last year semi-seriously. One of my friends who I bench with talked me into doing another meet which will be coming up in April.
    I am on a 12 week routine based on my one rep max of 380.

    Ill start the log at last Sunday.

    warmups to 315
    350x1 paused
    3x5 315

    Floor press with chains. IDK how much, but a lot.
    135+chains for 10
    185+ chains for 8
    225+ chains for 7 paused at the bottom.

    I was going to do this meet raw, which would be my first raw meet ever but Im not sure I will. I believe I can break the submaster record in multiply. The raw record is 420, which Im not sure about but if I think I can get close I may go for.
