Bench..Some days I hate it. Some days I love it. Last night was one of the days where I hated it and left the gym mad as hell at myself. I hesitated on my AMRAP bench and got out of groove and made the reps harder than they should have been. 160×7 is still a PR since I dont think I ever attempted 160 for more than 2 reps.
I also have to remember how far I have come since I started powerlifting. Two years ago I struggled to bench the bar for more than 5 reps, now 135lbs is just a warm up. I just have to keep reminding myself that everyone has bad days and that it’ll get better. Just keep repeating “Embrace the suck. Embrace the suck”
Pre bench Warm ups- Band pull aparts/ Bracing Protocol/ Very light lat pull downs for 2×12
