Day 349 of 365 - Bench Press

Warm Up
The house was hot
Mobility with 12k kettlebell

Bench Press - 5 x 45, 100; 3 x 110; 12 x 115, 125lbs
One Arm Row - 3 x 5/5 x 24k
KB Clean and Press - 3 x 4 x 24k's

Initially, I misloaded the bar for my hard set of bench. It was so easy, I re-added and realized I was missing 10lbs. Fortunately the second set was not much harder. My shoulders felt really good today.

The fourth rep on my sets of clean and press was not the most beautiful. It will get better with time though.

I have yoga tomorrow morning, squats in the evening, and then it is deload week.

I ordered two new grippers today. They are a step up from the hardest grippers I own. I think my strength is on a slow, long climb up. I will have a shot at them in the next year or two. It is exciting to finally have a program that is working for me.
