    Last night's bench workout was the bomb. My shoulders feel great. That's right great. They're not even popping today.

    ME Bench:
    Flat BB Bench: 5x45 3x95 3x95 3x135 3x135 1x185 1x205 1x235 (That's right bitches).
    Arnold Press (standing): 8x45 8x45 6x45
    Internal/External Shoulder rotations: 3x10x15
    Flat back, Close Grip Bench: 10x135 8x135 9x135
    Cambered bar row: 3x8x95

    Tonight I'm going to free the beast on the squat rack. 450 or better tonight boys. Not settling for less.

    Awesome work man...my philosophy is this, and a lot of people don't realize that when you get to benching around 250 thats all she wrote, lol - but most lack patience and give in by that time. Great to hear about the shoulder.

    I still have a week to decide, but I'm leaning toward yes.

    Sure you can. I don't think there were any Teen 148s at Norwich.

    Oh yeah, I ate a Dominoes ham and pineapple 555 about an hour before benching. Maybe I should do this more often. I LOVE THE 555!!!!!!

    Normally I'd get the bacon too, but I didn't want to sh*t myself while benching.

    Not a good night for squatting.

    Full Squat: 5x45 3x95 3x135 3x185 2x225 2x315 missx405 missx405 1x405 1x315
    Sumo DL: 10x1x225
    Standing cable crunch: 4x10x40
    Internal/External shoulder rotations: 3x10x15
    Hypers: 2x10x45

    Then ball for 20 mins.

    First time squatting with knee wraps. I don't like at all, but I'll try to get used to it. I couldn't get set right on the first 405 and completely missed because I wasn't tight enough. Ditched the wraps and went again but too soon. Got it halfway and then my hips popped up too soon. 3rd time was the charm and I tried a 2nd rep bu tonly got it halfway. Decided I was done squatting for the day. 405 4 times is rough when you only get it once.

    My form was just all screwy last night. I couldn't get it right, and that was upsetting.

    The wraps took more energy to put on than I was anticipating, and then I could not get my knees bent into a set position to unrack the bar and therefore I couldn't get my arch right so I felt completely unstable. As soon as I hit the bottom, my back rounded over and I had to dump it.
