01/14 ME Bench Press

Decided to go full range today and perform regular Bench Presses, hit a PR to boot!!

Bench Press Barx5, 95x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x2, 275x1, 315x1, 335x1PR then dropped back to 300x3x1 to comply with Prilepin.
Dips w/45lbsx4x8
Pull-Ups BWx5 sets to failure
Wide-Grip Shrugs 250x4x6

Last second decision to see where i'm at on Bench. Also figured it would be nice to do ME Bench without worrying about getting pancaked to the bench, this new rack kicks ass!! Its amazing what you can do when you dont have to worry about getting pinned. The PR actually felt pretty good,went up easy, probably could have gotten 345 but i promised myself if i hit 335 (10lb PR) i would drop back to 90% and bang out 3 singles. Next time i go for a PR on this sucker im gonna nail 350lbs. I've kinda gotten away from my plan i had set up but thats mostly due to the new equipment i've got, the plan was devised with my old setup in mind, so i guess it's back to the drawing board. My Dynamic Day plan will stay the same as well as my ME movement schedule, im just gonna reset the assistance moves as i now have KB handles and a whole new selection of assistance moves at my disposal. Also im kinda getting a little more instinctive as far as what i feel i need to hit which makes it difficult to fit to a set schedule of movements. I basically just know which days are ME and DE and thats about it, the assistance movements are made at game time. Kinda makes it fun that way.....Well thats it for today, now i just gotta wait a few hours and hopefully watch my Patriots beat up on the Broncos, this one could go either way.........GO PATS!!!
