I dunno how you guys rep this shit like that.

I benched 335 earlier this year and it was a good day if I could get 12 reps with 225.

It's really no different than your 225x1 except 24 more times  8)

Seriously, the way I program my training its a lot of rep work. Daily Undulating Periodization really increases work capacity. Also, I'm better at repping weight like this right after I hit a heavier set. Feels like a feather on the unrack.
1 set, 1 rep, 1 pound at a time

Yea, I do better with reps after a couple of heavier sets, even singles as well.

I think I need to try and hit that 25 marker next Tuesday... at least break 20... yea... IN.

Flex, try working up to a double...

A Flex Rep: phrase meaning, single rep.

Man that is some fantastic pressing John. Form looks dialed in. I was watching your bar path and it looked pretty much identical for every rep. Just a little bit of curve to it. Very nice to watch.
the only easy day was yesterday

I always make good on my challenges.

I came in hard.. really hard..  couldn't even get that last rep off me when it came down. I had nothing left...

24..  that's a 5 rep gain since I started this thing earlier this year.  I soo wanted that 25th rep... but, my spotter got a good 225x1 bb row single tonight during the attempt... hah. I was hysterical at the end, I mean, I had nothing left at all, could barely help him. He thought he just needed to help a little, when that succor crashed.. I was done.. nothing left in the tank at all.

I followed this with a set of 15... then a set of 9...

Decided to try and kill both of my training partners tonight as well :)

Warmed up with bar x30, 135 x12, 225 x3, 285 x2.

Wife did  75 x20, 75 x20, 75 x15
Ginger did 175 x15, 175x10, 175 x7

Don't mind the belly, I keep my gains fuel in there.

Way to go for it Trev and congrats on passing your 20 by a huge margin. 25 is so close. But then again 30 isn't far off either.

I haven't forgotten about wrapping this up for 2016.

My apologies, crazy busy the last couple of weeks.

I'll get back to this shortly.

With love,

Me.
