Max Effort Bench, 2/12/15

Still have this sinus/head/ear/plague.  It’s bad enough to give me a headache and make me feel tired, but not bad enough to keep me on the couch with my blankie and chicken soup.

Really good day today.  Stringing together a lot of them is going to lead to a good showing in May.

Warm Up

Shoulder complex, band stretching.  Forgot all about doing reverse hypers and abs.

Floor Press

245×3 (PR)

265×3 (PR)

The 263 triple is 30 pound improvement.  The 295 was a serious grind, it felt like it took about 10 seconds to lock out.  A 10 pound improvement.
