Morning weight: 274.2 (-.8 from last week)
5 min ellip, active stretch, and foam roller
REVERSE BAND PAUSE BENCH (bands take 70 off bottom and 20 off top)
1z395 (vid) (felt light)
1x425 (missed)(vid) (Got it off my chest and then my right side gave out. Buddy helped out a bit and then I was able to lock it out. Happy about explosion of chest)
1x425 (completely buried. It was embarrassing, lol)
PAUSE BENCH- went halfway up to work on bottom
20 Min treadmill
Overall, I can't really complain. The 395 rep in pause felt great and I barely missed 425. Also happy with normal bench. I had done so many reps at high weight that I was happy with 2x345.
With respect to pause, I was upset that my ass came off bench. I can't get my feet set like I normally do in the power rack so it's uncomfortable. Normally I don't have an issue with my ass coming off the bench.
With the 425 attempt, I think it was more technique issues than strength. I think the bar came down a little too fast. But, it came off the chest quickly, which means I got 355 off pretty easy.
Took sound off first two because there was a fan right next to where I put the camera.
