Fitness Log 2013-09-03: Bench, etc.

Bench

  • Warmup: 45 lbs x 5, 100 x 5, 130 x 5, 160 x 3, 180 x 2, 200 x 1
  • 210 x 5, 5, 5 (5RM PR)

Great day for the bench.  My upperbody around the neck has been ridiculously sore so I decided to cut back the volume to 3×5 but bump the weight up to 210.  I honestly had some doubts whether I’d be able to get 5 at 210 but I did it for a total of 3 sets!  The last time that I attempted 210 was just 5 months ago and I only got 2 reps.  Decent progress.

DB Congruent Side Raise

  • 15 lb DB: 12/12, 12/12

My first attempt at the congruent form of side raise i.e. sitting side ways on the bench to align the resistance moment curve with the strength curve of the muscle.
