02/10 2nd Part of ME Bench

Standing Military Press 45x5, 95x5, 135x5, 155x3, 183x2x3, 195x3
Partial Lat Pull-Up's bwx3x8
KB Alt. Row 90x4x6
Tricep Pushdown 100x4x6
KB Hammer Curl 25x3x8

This was what i would have done on the normal night had i not taken so long with the shirt. The Military presses were alright, i was gonna go up to 205 for 3 but held back a bit, feelng a bit sore from the first night. The Partial Pull up idea i got from an EliteFTS article for improving bench. This excercise is a partial movement that is done by using the lats only to raise the body, the range of motion was around10 inches. Felt like i had wings when i was done, this thing hurt. The Alternating KB rows are one of my new favorite movements, these friggin things are one of the better investments i have made for excercise equipment, my shoulders are feeling the best they have in a long time.....that about it for today, now im off to read up on bench shirts and how to get the most out of them.....till next time, keep it dark, keep it hevy!!

Nice Raw bench the other day. Once you learn the shirt, what do you believe you'll get out of it? Is it a tight fitting shirt? One or two ply? That's some nice work with the military presses too.

Not sure how much i will eventually get, initally i wanted to get 405 but we'll see, its gonna take work.....the shirt is a single ply rage, its fairly tight but i figure with another month or so of Kettle bell swings and stuff it will be tighter, those suckers are putting some traps on me,....The military presses werent too bad, this friggin bicep thing is bugging me, think im gonna start throwing in some hammer curls, im suspecting a muscle imbalance......guess we'll see......
