That’s a 40 pound increase in my PR.  I had no idea I would do that, given I had to start each set by laying on the bench and trying to relax my lower back, which was so tight I couldn’t get my heels on the ground at first.  Not sure what happened – I was pretty dehydrated, but nothing else cramped.
