Bench (Smolov)

Tues, 30 Oct 18

Bench: 135x5, 185x5, 205x5, 215x1, 205x1, 195x6x5

I overestimated my raw 1RM.  215 and 205 were too much for my shoulders - too slow. I dropped it down to 195, which definitely felt better and had decent speed and exertion. Remember, this is three weeks with 3 sessions a week ramping up to 10x3.

Update:  I don't know where I got my initial numbers and calculations from.  I should have done 190x8x4 - which is close to where I ended up.  That's with a 1RM of 240.

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