the best part of waking up…

Knowing I’m going to bench press gets me out of bed Monday mornings. Had I not been motivated by the bench I might still be in bed.

  • bench press
    • warm-up
      • 1 x 12 w/ the bar
      • 1 x 10 @ 135 lbs, feet up
    • work sets
      • 1 x 12 @ 155
      • 2 x 10 @ 165
  • close-grip bench
    • 1 x 10 @ 145
    • 1 x 12 @ 145
  • incline bench
    • 1 x 12 @ 115
    • 1 x 12 @ 125
  • dips
    • 30

Did not feel good today. Starting with the flat bench, 165 is more than I’ve been doing on my light chest days but this felt not good. I could not find a rhythm. Nothing felt great after that. Concentrate on getting the lats involved.
This workout made me feel that I should change something. I still want to do these lifts on Monday but probably should mix up the pace. Try lifting on the 3 minute, for instance. Keep things going fast, be done with bench, close-grip and incline early then move on to a couple more chest/triceps lifts.
Finished with shoulder rehab exercises.
