Last night I hit a PR on bench and finally hit 225lbs. I have a long way to go before I consider myself strong on the bench, but hitting a new PR made the rest of the workout a breeze since I was so pumped up. Isnï¿½??t progress wonderful?
In the past I didnï¿½??t do much work on my bench since it was a week point. (I have long skinny arms that I blamed for the lack of bench strength, but now I just tell myself to keep working on the bench and supplemental exercises and my arms will grow). I know that I shouldï¿½??ve have been focusing on my week bench press to improve it instead of neglecting it. I always focused on the squat and deadlift. At least I was focusing on those big lifts and not the hip abductor machine (no, I have never using a hip abductor machine).
Since I am now on a more balanced program and am now doing bench on a regular basis I expect to see some nice gains on my bench
Anyone else have a nice day at the gym?
