Did my first meet this past Saturday and learned a lot about what I need to do to get better.
My power off my chest (reversal strength) from a pause is gonna get worked on the most. So from a bench perspective, I will be doing most of my pressing from the chest to about the 2-board position to keep my chest under tension longer. Will follow it up w/ tricep work. I also plan to put in a speed day as well to see if I can benefit from it. I also plan to keep the workouts short and intense (under 40 minutes)
So as of now, my first bench workout post-meet was today:
Worked up to 5x5x225
Rolling tricep extensions 3x15
- Also added in some very light reverse curls and hammer curls to rehab my right elbow (tennis elbow).
