    Jumped in with the 6:45 class…


    The 150 felt heavy, but 155 and 160 were smooth. PR without pause is 175, so may be able to do more on next bench day.

    Thanks for the spots Pete, Brad and Alex!

    Alignment correction at 115# with Kevin’s fancy schmancy iPad app πŸ˜‰ Thanks!

    Last time we did bench press I started hitting the wall about 4 sets from the end so I was more conservative this time but I still had some gas in the tank when I finished at 125. Boo.

    Cashout – 500 m row – 1:49

    My first ‘nooner’ class. Coming from my usual 5:45 class, I couldn’t believe how quiet it was in the gym!

    1. Lora

      Yippeeee! Look at those bench numbers! And you still had gas in the tank??? You’ll be pushing even more weight next time.

    WU x 2

    Bench Day! πŸ™‚
    10 sets of 2 reps with 2 sec pause

    As with shoulder press, I have one arm that is distinctively stronger than the other. My left arm always lags behind horribly as the weight goes up. So weird.

    Great sharing a bar with you Jason and Patrick πŸ™‚ I don’t get to work out with either of you very often.
