    I was really feeling it tonight, and I'm pretty sure I could have easily gotten 355 if I would have not had so many reps at the upper end of my benching.

    - ran out of weight with the dbs and figured it was about time to change it up, so after hearing lots of positives about them, I gave the chest supported rows a try.

    - this workout felt like shit. only 1 day of rest between me and de bench days and i guess thats what happens. Looking forward to hitting a big increase off 1 board on wednesday, and then a week from that, it's back to reg. flat bench for hopefully a big pr increase as well.
