[quote="Jonathan"]Insane benching JP - I am in awe! How the fuck are you managing to nearly do 5x5x120kg??
because its easy
Basically its like this: my first rep is awful, terrible, inconfident, scary... Anyone who doesn't know me would think "there is no way that guy can do another one" - and then i do 4 more easy.
Thats why i have a crap bench PB
yesterdays session at the Edinburg Strength Cult Headquarters!
1x207.5kg new pb
1x212.5kg new PB!
firstly, i was wearing my competition singlet - i know it is raw and all, but the tightness really helps. Walkouts were awful, the weight felt like a ton! But once i started to move, it was ok.
The 212.5kg was not too bad, but the depth was questionable. This left me feeling quite unhappy about it because i was thinking if i should claim it as a PB or not. After watching the video couple times i think i'll take it as a PB - not a good lift, borderline, and with a bit of good morning thrown in. Could have dug it up from deeper as well, no problems.
Thats all, i was wasted afterwards and my peak has been reached i think. I will take time off till wednesday and start new lighter cycle then, though haven't decided what to do with my bench press (after all, i have only put 2.5kg to my bench PB in the past 8 months, so understandably i am eager to turn my recent work into a PB!). Hopefully will reach new heights again in about 6 weeks time!
