My Road to a 4x Bodyweight Deadlift: Episode 30

Week 9, Day 2: Max Effort Bench

Today was so-so.

Not bad but definitely not amazing.

Bench form is starting to feel tighter and smooth again (I switched my foot position closer together and further back) which is helping a lot but it’s not improving as quickly as I’d like.

To be honest, I’m probably just getting greedy.

My Deadlift is improving rapidly (that’s what I’m focusing on…hence the name of this series) so I just need to stop complaining and take everything in stride.

1) Bench: 4 x 2 @215lbs

2) Pause Bench Press: 3 x 5 @ 185lbs

3) Barbell Bent Over Row: 4 x 6 at 155lbs

4a) Weighted Pull-Up: 3 x 10 +20lbs

4b) Pause Weighted Push-Up: 3 x 10 +45lbs
