Decent night, still learning that friggin shirt. I keep finding myself forgetting to do certain things like flaring my lats, driving my legs, burying the traps, etc......if its not one thing its another. One of these days i'll get all facets firing at the same time and put up some good weight. Til then i just gotta keep practicing. The 365 came out of the groove, had no leg drive and overall was quite poor, so i dropped the weight to 355 and nailed that pretty easy so i decided to split the difference and try 360(see 365 results and repeat).....by this time i was pretty beat so i decided to take off the shirt and do 315x3 which i have never done before, granted i have never tried for 3 with 315 before either, stength levels were never quite there. So overall i was happy with the benching, i was hoping for more but arent we all?!!....so on to JM Presses,i decided to try these again after watching my Westside Videos and seeing the correct way to do these and yes now i definitely feel them in my triceps, so i guess i'll leave them in for next week as well....Another week down, gonna start looking for a meet for the May/June timeframe and get a plan together...until next time, Keep it Dark, Keep it Heavy!!

Nice job on the shirted bench PR (deads too). Overall, your recent string of PR's is impressive.

Thanks Rick, thats kind of the beauty of the Westside Template, just about everytime you come back to an exercise it get's PR'd, this shows the work is paying off which is good as sometimes i get skeptical and wonder am i doing this crap right......The deads i was hoping for more as i knowi am capable of doing more, in hindsight i should have waited for my body to fully recover from the Box Squat PR the week before that really fried me, but i guess thats what this is all about,learning from the mistakes.......

Nice work in the shirt, gotta give yourself more time and you'll nail the bigger weights.
