8-25-08 Mon. / Bench Night / Forgot to weigh.
The night I've been waiting for since Thursday! The chance to try the 2 ply Custom 'Super Katana'!
Bench Press (raw warmups)
Bar x 20 over a football
135 x 12
225 x 8
315 x 4
(Add 2 ply Custom Super Katana / 54 chest - 52 arms - 2 inch scoop neck - reinforced collar - grid stitched - open back)
500 x 4 @ 3 boards (feeling it out at 3 boards tonight) Pulled it on more after these reps relaxed it some)
700 x 1 @ 3 boards (Much easier to set up under the bar after re-seating it. The 700 felt very good.)
800 x 1 @ 3 boards (This felt strong and solid. Not real fast, but a strong solid push. Fast enough!)
820 x 1 @ 3 boards - PR! (Felt heavier but still manageable. Got to the boards with good control and up steady to lock.)
I think I'm gonna' love this shirt! Time to start working the boards down!
P.S. Chris got the notification today that he got bumped up to qualify for WPC Worlds. Gold's Team now has 3 members going: Me at 308 50-54 / Cam Clayton at 220 Jr. / Chris Sanford 242 40-44.
