Cycle 1, Week 2, Day 1
Bodyweight: 188 ish
Work Set 1---95x3
Work Set 2---115x3
Work Set 3---125x8
notes: really felt good about my set about 125. Matched my reps from last week but with more weight on the bar. All time pr for 8 reps I think. Since I felt so great I decided to do an extra set with next weeks weight. I'd say it was about an RPE 8.5 set but next time I have a good day I think I may just pyramid down with my first two work sets instead of going up in weight.
notes: bar definitely felt slow. Probably because I went so hard on presses. Reps still felt very smooth, just slow. I think doing bench after I am fatigued really makes me focus on technique and setup, with is probably why my reps feel so clean.
notes: pretty pissed about this. Same reps as last week, and felt like shit on the +25 set. maybe its just because my shoulders were beat after all of the pressing. Would like to see some improvement next week.

I didn't deadlift last week because life got in the way and I couldn't get a session in. Instead of being bummed about missing a session I took the opportunity to get extra rest and recover as much as possible, which lead to a very good pressing workout. No way I'm missing any sessions this week, but I definitely got as much positive as I could from missing a workout.
