REALLY happy with this benching. Alltime volume PR here. A part of me is sad that I will be moving some volume from my chest to my quads one my injury completely heals. And to think that I missed 225 at my meet at the tail end of 2016 when I was 12ish pounds lighter.

Staying on the grind man, hell yeah. I see a 275 bench in the near future!

Sticking to my guns, bro. I sure hope you're right. I didn't think that would be a possibility for a long, long time a few years ago. And I see that you're doing the same, judging from the instagram posts i've been seeing!

Two minute rests here on the deadlift left me on the ground gasping for air after my final set. Absolutely killer. My normal cable row machine was broken so I had to opt for the Tbar rows.

Last session of the deload is done. Making a single change this upcoming block. Taking two sets off my bench on the final training day of the week(the current box squat session) and putting two onto front squats. I'd like to give my quads a bit more work and would like to see if my bench can continue its upward trajectory with two fewer sets per week.

Not bad, all things considered. I hate cutting down on sleep, but I've had to sacrifice some rest this week which may be negatively impacting things.
