Barbell Floor Press Challenge Week 63



I did bench presses last week; the workout was pretty much lackluster. Here are the results:


Tuesday, July 30, 2019
barbel flat bench press
135 lb x 5 x 1
205 lb x 0
185 lb x 0
155 lb x 5 x 1
165 lb x  5 x 6 <-----   lying flat on bench i.e. feet not on floor toes pointed to ceiling
170 lb x 3 x 3
standing triceps pulldown (alternating sets with bench press)
70 lb x 5 x 8
I did not do very well at all; I had a cold but I wanted to exercise anyway. I could not press the weights the way I wanted; I had a spotter who helped me get the bar racked (I always lift the bar myself, spotters only help me rack the bar if I am unable to rack it). I don't like what happened; 205 pounds is not heavy.
Well, I've added deadlifting to my exercise regimen so I'll do 175 pounds as a return to posterior chain compound lifts. I'll also do what I planned to do last week: bench press 205 pounds. 
I'll keep you posted.
But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14
