285x5 Bench Press Rep PR... kinda
« on: May 16, 2016, 10:32:24 PM »
My spotter touched the bar on the 5th rep... gotta work on that right arm lockout.



And I clearly need to work on my video embedding skills.  >:(

Nice Benching!

Just get rid of the "s" on the https://, and it will auto imbed.

Thanks everyone. It feels good to be hitting PR's on the bench again. I felt like I was stuck in the mud all last year... then, I fell in love with food again and the bench gains came back. I'm hoping for a 335 1RM on bench soon. :)

My spotter touched the bar on the 5th rep... gotta work on that right arm lockout.

He may have touched the bar but I am pretty sure that he wasn't exactly helping :)

Nice work, keep at it!

Thanks. You know, he said he didn't help and I'll take him at his word but I know he touched the bar. I wasn't exactly fresh when I did this either. If I recall correctly, I had worked up from 135x10, 185x5, 225x5, 245x5, 265x5 and finished it off with what you saw in the video. It's so nice to be progressing again on the bench. I'm not nearly as lean as I was a few months ago, but all the lifts are going up and the extra fluff is worth it to me.

Just keep the fluff in check :)
