This is the first day of my 12 week cycle following 3 weeks off. Today I concentrated on going real slow and exploding up. I was pausing at the top and bottom and it completely tired me out, so much that I could not be explosive toward the end of sets. Next week I want to concentrate on finding a more comfortable pace, probably faster. A rate similar to the pace at which I comfortably breathe seems more appropriate.
And, there’s links to my 12 week bench press routine on the right.
