you could do a few sets of heavy doubles or triples...and then do some back off sets just to get some reps in....that worked for me. could do that and a speed day.

What are your weak points? Are you slow? Do you have a sticking point?

uuuummm i dont think i have any week points to be honest. i think my rep speed is cool and normally if i have a weight i want to try i do it then if i cant i do some shit to get stronger then i get it the next go round. later on in the week i will do a pyramid workout so you guys can see my rep speed with different weights

I just looked at the video again. Based on where you got stuck, some pin presses or board presses might help you out. You need to grunt louder also...I could barely hear you.

Yeah nice one .

I agree with Ross , board should help - and the are cheap. I made 3 sets last year for less than $20. I just leave them at the gym.

I think speed work would help you power through that sticking point. You got the weight off your chest and stalled out half way so that tells me if you could accelerate it a little better off your chest then you would probably have that weight. Just have to keep it moving.

didnt do any benching this week. the day i was gonna bench, my little brother had parent teacher conferences so i went to that so i could see if i had to kick his ass. luckily it wasnt a bad report so he got to live another day

i did some pushups on thursday just to get some type of work in. i will bring the cam to the gym next go round. i am debating on whether i should try getting the 475 again. there were a coupel different variables that could have played into me getting it a little over half the way so i may shoot for it again. if i dont do that i may just do a heavy 5x5 with around 365. ill let you guys know and ill bring the cam

aight. first my dumb ass was so hype i didnt press the button on the cam hard enough when i had it on the self timer so i missed the initial warm up set of 225 for 12. from that point on i got a buddy to press the button for me


so this is the second set which is 275 for 10



this is 315 for 6. you can see i could do more but at at point i felt warm and i didnt want to take away from the initial goal so i stopped


and lest see if i got the 475 this time......................................


afterwards i repped out with 225. well i didnt rep out exactly i just did 20. i felt like i could have done a few more but i felt a headache coming on so i said fuck it



any suggestions on what you feel like i should work on. do my elbows still look to far out? i honestly completely forgot about them while i was doing it. and as you can see i havent really done any work since the last time i tried it. just felt like i didnt prepare myself right thats all.

next time. 5 beans
