Yeah, that was my total volume from Monday's work sets. A little misleading, but I got you to look. This was week 7 training (which means I'm 7 weeks out from my meet, not 7 weeks into training), Intensification II of my block work.
325 for speed bench felt super easy, even only taking 1 minute between sets. I finally started getting beat during floor presses. Still figuring out RPE. Heck, I was so used to working up to singles that rep work confuses me.
This work ruins me for my Friday session. I can't imagine what I will feel like for next week's benching. I will be spent for Monday and completely dead for next Friday. We'll see if hard work pays off.
Wow. Never seen a self lift off bench before.

I would think you would want some spotter pins for that self lift off bench, take it out and all the sudden realize the weight is too much and coming down on you, still looks fancy and would love one, but know I would get hurt. Awesome benching too.
Great pressing Vince. I've never seen a bench like that one!!! What brand is it, sorinex?

Donnie Thompson talked about that type of bench in an article her did for Power Magazine last year. The comapny also has a bench like that, only for DB, its freaky looking!!
Excellant benching. I love watching the big name guys doing old school Westside Speed work like that. Gives me hope that im not wasting my time!!
