So your probably asking yourself, "How did you do speed pulls and shrugs" well, I put on some Gold's Gym gloves thats how, LOL!!! It actually worked out great for grip work, lol. Oh well, I gotta do what I gotta do. Next week I'll be pulling my opener and my hand should be good to go.

    Done...I benched today with very little pain today. I think if I bench with more of a flat back, I have little to no pain. My pain area is upper bicep, armpit/pec tie in. So if anybody has any ideas on what I should do, don't be shy

    Today I benched alone, so I was alittle worried about taking my last set to seven reps. I think if I had a spotter, I would of got 7 reps. Oh well, no big deal. Next week i'll be taking my bench opener, which I am planning on opening up with 420. We'll see how next week goes.

    Brian, hit Tim up. That's exactly what he tore so maybe he can give you some guidance.

    Not sure on the bench pain. I had that a couple times ever, and only not benching for a couple weeks then going light for a few weeks made it go away. That is not my usual shoulder pain I get though and it sounds like yours is also some kind of recurring thing from an injury. 420 should be an easy opener regardless.
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift
    1650lbs. raw total

    Hopefully taking a week off after the meet will be enough. I do plan on training a little light on everything for a few weeks. We'll see if this will help with recovery, I'm sure it will.

I carried the bar higher then normal and it felt comfortable, so i'll be keeping it like this. Next week i'll be taking my openers on all 3 lifts. My planned openers for this meet will be 625+420+655=1700. I'll post the video as soon as I can, so check back later
