This was the last week in a 6wk cycle of speed bench with varying tensions.

We ended up with doubled purples and choked green bands which was a ton of tension, but I think it really helped my speed.

Next week we will be going back to 5 sets of 5 reps with minis and choked purples and working the cycle all over again.

With the choked greens on there it really hammered my tris big time. They are super sore today.

That was crazy! My first rep sucked but could really see the difference on the next two,

That whole workout was awsome!

That's a very good idea. I noticed you didn't go super narrow on the grip. I imagine every extra inch of ROM is brutal.

If you look at his log, he starts pretty close and works his way out.

Yeah, Travis has us start thumb from the smooth then pinky in the ring then comp grip. Three sets at each grip with the defference being we have only done two sets at comp grip at these tensions, All his other grips are just as fast. He should post up some of his JM presses!!! CRAZY weight and strength, Travis is a constant reminder of how strong your tris need to be to have a big bench! Real and raw baby!
