Slept better last night but was up from like 3am-4am still feel way better today, gut is still kinda fucked but I’m not nauseous, at least.

First of all, super fucking pumped about the PR. Secondly, surprised it happened given how my first few bench sets went. 135 was stiff and tired, delts seemed fatigued right off the bat. Did my first set of 225 and it felt worse, I normally don’t jump from 135 => 225 so that was probably part of the reason but I definitely didn’t feel like it was going to be a PR kind of day. 275 set 1 moved okay, set 2 was ugly, bar path was off, I wasn’t tight enough. 315 moved really well, 335 might’ve been better. Got a spotter for 355, told him I probably wouldn’t need him and absolutely smoked the weight, once it touched my chest I knew I had it easy, he remarked how easy it looked. Was pretty nervous going into 375, I’ve only touched above 315 once in 2020 (for a total of 2 reps) and this is a 10lb all time PR but got nice and tight, brought it down under control and moved it pretty easily honestly (I don’t really do RPE but I’d guess an 8.5). I think if I had everything right 390-395 could’ve gone up today but I didn’t feel like pushing it.
Everything else about the workout was solid, the 15 on 225 was rough but gave me some volume. My triceps are absolutely gassed right now, I’ve realized that my bench is way more tri dominant than it was in my younger years (my pinkies are on the inside edge of the ring), if nothing else it’s keeping my shoulders healthy.
Ramble over, will probably squat tomorrow or do some yoga/abs.
