9 weeks out, day 2, bench press overload work

Good bench press session tonight.  Feels like the overload work via the Titan Ram presses and the eccentric only work are making a difference.  While working up to my Titam Ram press weight and the eccentric only work, the single at 315 moved so fast that I decided to skip 330 and attempt 335.  I fully expected it to go but it stalled high off the chest.  330 would've gone for sure but 335 will go next week.  Either way, I wasn't real concerned since those reps were mainly preparation for the overload work.

The Titan Ram presses and eccentric only work is getting better every week.  It's still a challenge to unrack the weights while staying tight but the reps themselves are getting better and better.  Afterwords the full ROM work with 295 for 5 sets of 2 moved as fast as 285 did last week.

I tried some JM presses to hit my triceps with some extra work but my left elbow doesn't like bending past 90 degrees.  Kept getting a twinge like my funny bone was getting hit so I guess I'll have to stick to close-grip board presses and bar dips.
