    ME bench
    floor press closegrip 185x3 225x1 245x1 255x1! 265xmiss 265xmiss
    2 board press closegrip 225x3 245x3
    db rows 125x8,10!
    db swings(powwerclean things) 15x15,15,15,15
    done
    5lbs PR on floor press! It suprised me. the 2 misses with 265 were ME though.
    2 board felt stupidly easy with 225, must've hit my groove perfect. 245 was not failor but pretty tough.
    DB rows were ace. Hit 10reps which is PR.
    DB swings felt good. Got a good burn 'in' my shoulder.(rotator?)
    Last time i did floor press(last week) i hit 205x8 and my bud got 205x1, today he got 275 lol

    DE bench
    135x ~6-7 triples
    185 single 245 single
    iso incline 230x7,6,5
    row machine stackx10,10
    done
    Forgot to bring workout shirt so i was very hot, plus humid as hell today and around 30degrees outside so overall i was too hot and i sweat like 10liters of water.
    The iso incline was a big PR. I thought i was on the iso bench but they switched around the machines.
    Now i have to decide how much chain to get. 70$ a pair and 6 at the most.

    Ace! Got a new job and start saturday.

    ME bench
    Decline closegrip 185x3 225x1 255x1 265x1 275x1 285xalmost
    skulls 70x10,10,10,10
    lockout on 2"board 5~rom 255x5 275x5!
    pulldowns 240x4,6,6
    done
    Decline was cool and weird at the same time. Felt like i was going to get crushed on all the decents yet i still managed to get them up powerfully. 285 was soooo close.
    Lockouts were quit strong today. 275x5 is definatly a PR.
    Pulldowens were very weak! I used to be able to get around 300x4, now 240 lol
    Fridays my last day as a milkman! I'm excited

    wewight 180.5

    My PR on lockout about a month ago is 275x3 so i beat it good today.
    Also my tire is ~725lbs!!! thats heavy
