Cycle 1 – 3s Week: Bench Press: 8/6/14

Had to lift earlier than usual today.
Had a beer last night, which helped me sleep, and still felt good as I left for the gym  (6/10).
Energy level was good for most of the session until the end.

Nice easy lifts and I thought my session was longer than I thought it was.
Good session overall.
