Coming off that week layoff i started to do light weight workouts to get my body acclimated for heavy bench again. Today i decided to test my strength again because i felt as if it had risen again. Heres how it went.
Warm up sets 135 X 12, very, very easy
2nd set 200 X 11, still easy
3rd set 225 X 5, felt good and ready for a max
I tried my old max of 320, felt a little light so i decided to put a 5 pounder on each side. End result was 330 max. Coming off of the bench break i felt weak, it just took another 2 to get me back into it and the end result was my strength had risen. Even better news is that i matched my schools bench record, now i have the highest bench in the school, and im only a junior. Breaking it is just at the edge and i can feel it.
