Today was bench day.
BB Bench: 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 205x5,5,5,5,5 (RPE = 7,7,7,8,8)
Cable Row: 140x8, 210x8,8,8,8
Flat DB Bench: 85x8,8,8,8
I've been feeling weak on the bench lately, probably from losing about 15lbs due to not squatting for so long. Hope to get the weight up now that the squat is coming along. I guess I also need to start eating more, but that's usually not a problem I've have no knee pain at all from last Monday's 5x5 squat session, so I am hoping I'm on the right track.
I try to autoregulate my bench workouts at least. I've been doing basically an LP for the squat for rehab, and I've never been good at estimating RPE for the deadlift. I started 10lbs lighter than my last bench 5x5 block, so I have some work to do. After 5 sets I was toast, so I stopped there.
Damn, it was hot in the gym. We've been getting the summer rains in AZ, and the humidity is high. I was sweating like a pig.
