Bench press, 8 weeks out

Still making progress every workout in the bench press.  This is a very nice change after spending so long training around gimpy shoulders.  It felt great to handle 295 for multiple reps--first time in a long time.  Also still making progress with the overload bench presses with the Titan Ram.

It's fun to look forward to my bench press training again.

Bench Press:  135x10, 185x10, 225x3, 250x3, 275x3, 295x3, 295x2, 290x2, 290x2, 290x2

add Titan Ram:  315x3, 315x3

Close Grip Bench Press:  225x4, 225x4, 225x4

This week is the first week of training sets of 3 as I start to ramp up the intensity towards the meet in two months.


  1. Good to see Craig, Know how you feel on the benching thing and no soreness though your training. Looking forward to seeing how you go coming into your comp.

    1. Thanks Keith! keeping my fingers crossed that this stretch of 'feeling good' lasts a good long while.
