Today I am benching heavy...again... Feels like I'm hitting a wall. But sometimes you have to hit a wall enough times until it stops hitting back... and I'm determined to get to that 500 bench...
After smoking two triples with 455 on Sunday I wanted to triple 465 today. It wasn't quite there and I didn't want to miss, so I just added more sets...

Today was my deadlift day. Being that it was also 2 weeks out from the ST meet I really wanted to feel some heavy weight and overload on the deads. I was basically just going to keep lifting heavier and heavier until I failed. Then have two weeks of rest to come back fresh and ready to pull something festive.
705x1 (heaviest ever beltless lift)
Sumo 2" Block Pulls
865x1 (20 lb PR)
Sumo 4" Block Pulls
890x1 ( 30 lb PR -- and no straps)
Sumo Band Pulls (vs. minis --150 tension)
So things got pretty heavy and by the time I pulled against bands I could feel the effects of the block pulls. My hands were hot and my left hamstring tie-in was talking to me...
But I'm happy with how smooth the block pulls moved and how easily they all locked out... big things to come!
