Upper body (Bench 255x2)

Fri, 24 Aug 18

Bench: 135x10, 185x10, 205x5, 215x5, 225x5, 245x3, 255x2, 245x3, 225x2x5
Seated Smith Machine OHP: 50x8x8
Preacher Curls: 40x8x10

Bench went really well.  In fact, I'd say the 255 for a double is the heaviest I've benched in quite a while.  The high rep sets were brutally pumptastic, despite the low weight.  I've been having a hard time hitting the really high reps on those while getting the whole 8 sets, so I figured I'd drop the weight.  In between bench sets I did some behind the neck stretches with a 45 lb DB to get a good pull on my lats and serratus.  Also did some single arm rows with the same DB after each stretch for sets of 15.

Sorry to ask you to verify, but the sunglass spammers have been going crazy.
