Well it's that time again. I am doing a meet on December 20th so I've gotta hit some openers or at least decide what they are going to be. I did my first shirted bench in a while tonight and it went pretty well.
350lbs x 1 -- hard touch
365lbs x 1 -- easier touch, solid press, felt faster than the 350.
Which would you choose as an opener? Or maybe somewhere in the middle. I like being able to touch easier but if I'm having an off day starting lighter could be the right thing to do. I have one more session in the shirt before the day of the meet so it will depend how that goes too.
