180x1 - Lost the line on this, it started drifting towards the rack and I nearly failed it
190x1 wanted a double or even a trebble on this but not there
180x2 second rep a grind
Left it there, felt s**t on this tonight.

Decline bench

100x10
140x5
150x5
160x5
165x3

Bench

I do this every so often, I think my pb was 23

SLDL DOH no belt
60x10
100x8
140x5
160x3
180x1 - wanted 3, grip failed
Mixed Grip belt on
180x3
200x3 Felt hard, I need to up this next week, been on 200 for a while now.

Front Squat

60x10
80x8
100x5
120x3
140x1
155x1 - pb Total grinder, my form went to s**t, but I hit depth and stood up with it Happy

Weird session tonight, I felt like f**king off home when I missed a double 190 on bench and then missing a treble on 180. Stuck with it though and did some pretty decent sets after. Back to work from tomorrow so I'll be back to my normal routine again.

You need 2 weeks off bench mate,still train chest but do some db work then start a rep cycle at 140 and work up.

Should be down as normal, see you there.

I might just do that depending how I train Thursday. I've never really taken it easy on bench, just kept hammering it at 90 - 95% for 5's and 3's, it seems to have worked in the past. I have been doing some pretty brutal work on it recently though and I seem to be suffering now, a change / rest might be good.

Felt f**ked by the end, but I think I could have ground a couple more out. I was happy with 30 though as the guy I was training with had just done 15 Grin

Thought it felt heavy! You were like a steam train on the lighter yoke, looked very fast.

Cheers. I have been for the last year or so, I found on once a week progression just slowed to a crawl. On a Monday I'll have my heavy day and on a Thursday I try to get in a bit more volume.

I know what you mean, I always feel pushed for time, you can add an extra bench set without it taking too long though. For example if you were just to add a few warm up sets then into 6 - 8 sets of 5 reps at 70 - 75% then you should be able to do it with only about a minute rest between each set. total time about 10 minutes and you've added a pretty solid bench set to your week.

Yeah I might do something like this then!

Nice deads and strong squatting, 260 x 3 should give you more than 270 now though..maybe 280+ I reckon
