5/3/1: Cycle 6 – 1s Week: Bench Press: 4/3/15

03 Apr

Cycle 6 – 1s Week: Bench Press: 4/3/15

Decent amount of sleep and felt good as I start my day (6/10).
Still have my right wrist sprain that is very annoying.

Felt good and strong for most of the session.
Had a trainer I haven’t seen in a long time notice my progress and that helped with my motivation!

Despite my right wrist acting up, I managed to do well on this.
Started off at the good bench but thin pull-up bar but was able to use the power cage after my 1st warm-up set.
Thicker bar definitely helped with the stability of my FatGripz.
Sets was easy until the top set.
Plan was 6 reps but only managed 4.
Tried to attempt a 225 lbs single but lost it on the way up.
Think I could have had it if my wrist wasn’t damaged and I had a liftoff …
