  • From memory on Saturday the 13th:
    85%, so 315

    Did ladders in the following order:
    1, 2, 3, 4, 5
    1, 2, 3, 4, 4

    Dropped to 205 (55% of 370)
    Close grip 20
    Wide grip 20


    • I haven't trained anything since that bench session.
      I should be doing 90% or working to a max tomorrow so I will see how I feel.
      The thought process was that the 315 sets last week actually felt pretty good. Perhaps by taking a full week I can maybe put up a good number tomorrow...


      • ugh, been bad about keeping up here again...
        Feb 20th I hit 375 for a single and missed 380 weighing in at 211.2
        Feb 27th at JPos house a TON of work but the best set was 325 x 4 weighing in at 212.0 that day. 4 sets of 225 close x 15 at the end
        Mar 6th at the gym: doubles at 320, 325, 330, 335, 340 and then a single at 345, bodyweight was 212.8 3 sets of 8 at 260 or 265 after the heavy sets
        Mar 13th at the gym: singles of 315, 335, 355, 380, 385 and 390! Weighed in at 213.2 finished with 3 sets of 8 at 275

        So, prior to training yesterday the plan was to lay out Smolov Jr, find a new max then go right into the Shieko taper for 8 weeks of high volume benching... Now that yesterdays session went so well, I hesitate to change up what I'm doing...
        Not gaining "crazy weight"
        Solid jump in 1rm this week
        Shoulders, elbows etc, feel good
        Perhaps I am answering my own question. LOL


        • So last Monday at work I did super sets of alt db curls with 40s or 45s and straight bar pressdowns with 130 or 135... 10 sets of 10 doing a set every time a new song came on.
          This week I did the same but with ez bar curls and lying extensions (to behind my head) with 80lbs. felt good.


          • Saturday the 20th at the gym:

            280 x 6 sets of 10 then one set of 9
            225 x 4 sets of 10 reps to finish out the volume as if I finished the 280 10 x 10.
            Rough. Every 10th rep of every single set was brutal, even the 225 sets.
            Thought maybe I'd get through them but apparently not.
            Weighed about 213.6
