    10 sets of 10 reps at 275... ROUGH!
    I went in at 10:00 and finished just before 12:30
    I didn't get 275 on the bar until just after 10:30 so those 10 sets were just under 2 hours long. BIG breaks, move weight, that was the goal.
    That day took a lot out of me for sure. Loved it!

    Solid day.
    305 x 7 was the goal and I eeked it out but I wasn't thrilled with the volume of just 1 set. So on the fly I decided to set up some dead presses. Glad I did. I certainly did not think I would work up to 375 (almost 385). The sets here felt better as I went on. I honestly don't seem to feel great until I have been pressing for 60-90 minutes. Those first working sets feel rough, then as i go it feels better and better.
    Either way though, I've been at or around 375 for a few weeks now. Really need to push that up...

    So after the benching I did:

    rope press downs
    40 x 3 minutes straight

    Pec dec
    40 x 50, 30, 20

    Last 2 were just to get the blood into the elbows and chest after the heavy pressing.
    It all felt very good today.
    Amazing what carbs/calories can do. Night and day from last week.

    New forum update...
    Hope I can figure out pics/vids...

    Last Saturday sucked.
    I was supposed to do 340 for ten singles but only did 4 and they were moving SLOW.
    Then to try and make up for a bit of volume I did 225 for 2 sets of 10 Spoto presses. Those felt fine.
    I also stayed in ketosis all week prior to the bench aside from carbing up on Friday. I am thinking that 1 day does not make up for a whole week. I realize the error in my ways trying to half ass 2 different things at the same time, then neither one is done efficiently. Sometimes I need that wake up call.

    So after Connors broken leg, Benching last Sunday instead of Saturday, training Thursday (which I usually take off), working this morning due to Christmas rush, I guess 10 pounds up isn't too bad.
    Maybe the next few weeks will be even better with a "normal schedule" and Connor on Christmas break... We'll see I guess.

    So, it's been a rough week with snow and overtime.
    I did some trap/back stuff on Sunday (the day after benching) but haven't been to the gym since.
    I was going to go today but again a kind of tight schedule and anything I would have done would have been minimal because I prefer to be off on Thursday and Friday so I am rested well to bench on Saturday. I'm also doing a 12-14 hour shift tomorrow so I didn't feel the need to try and squeak anything in today. O-well. Hopefully I am just well rested for benching. I'll also have extra time Saturday so I may hit some stuff after the bench as well.
