Shoulder stretch w/ band, roller
Warm up sets
When I was warming up, things were feeling pretty good so I got the idea in my head to go ahead and try for a new 1PM PR. Glad I did.
225 x 1
250 x 1 (this had been my working max for this cycle)
280 x 1 *PR – at this point, I was feeling like I had more left, so I called my big man out to the garage and he cheered me on. Nothing like your son shouting words of encouragement to give you that little extra push.
300 x 1 *PR!
more Bench Press (135 x 8 x 3 – fast reps)
Tricep push downs (red band)
Extremely pleased with a new 300 lb PR on bench! My previous 1RM was 270, quite some time ago. Bench has long been a weaker lift of mine so I am very happy with this. A great Christmas present to myself.
