300 by 40

My quads and ass started getting sore last night and I’m definitely feeling them today! Out in the garage after close to 4pm.

Warm-up

  • 5:00 Airdyne (114 cals, 2.67 km)
  • 30 PVC Passes
  • 2:00 Airdyne (44 cals, 1.05 km)

Bench Press

  • 10×45#
  • 8×135
  • 5×185
  • 3×215
  • 1×245
  • 1×275
  • 1×285
  • 1×295 (PR)
  • 1×300 (PR)

 

Man 295 was so fucking sketchy, but recovering it gave me the confidence to really go at 300. This makes seven weeks in a row hitting some kind of PR on the bench! I wrote a post with more thoughts over on nick.blog. I set this goal back on June 8th and I sure am glad it’s done. Now I can concentrate on some other stuff.
