I was pretty damn happy last night with how I benched. I hit 225 at the meet so tripling 205 with a 1-2 second pause on my chest is a major improvement. My form is getting better each week too. I’ve had a real problem keeping my upper back tight through the entire movement but last night was much better. I didn’t originally plan on doing the axle push press but it looked like fun and it’s been a couple months since I’ve done it. I think I was hitting 195 for a couple reps when I dropped them so I’m glad I haven’t lost much on that one.
