05/18 ME Bench-PR's Woo-Hoo!!!

3 BD Press 185x5, 225x3, 275x2, 315x1, 365x1, 410x1PR, 425x1PR, 405x2, 405x1
Triceps Pushdown 85x4x10
Chest Supported Rows 105x3x10
Shrugs 275x3x15

Was quite surprised tonight as i have a head cold thing going on where i seem to only have use of one nostril at a time, sometimes neither when apparently a shift turnover takes place. But i forged on, i was on the fence as to whether i should lift or go to bed and i guess since you're reading this you figured that mystery out. I had absolutely no intention of trying to beat my PR, i was just gonna work up to the previous 405 and do a bunch of singles but then felt like a pussy for thinkin like that. the 410 shot up extremely fast and i knew i had something left in the tank and decided to throw on the ole 425 (hindsight tells me i should have thrown on 430 but i digress). Again this shot up fast and i was quite happy. Realizing that my body is fighting something off and i didnt want to fry CNS too bad i back off for some down sets. I really had to force myself to finish this workout up. I felt like crap and was now tapped for energy but then thought about how it felt when i couldnt work out a couple days ago and that drove me. I still took it fairly easy for the remainder but given the cicumstances it was still taxing....now i shall just recover and get ready for ME Squat/DL day which i think calls for a ME on DL but i am not positive.....until next time, when Snot Rocketing, always have a mirror handy, you never know when that little sucker is gonna clear the nostril only to hang from your chin, unknowingly.......

Nice PR! A 20lb PR is always a nice way to end the week. What do you think you'll be picking for the ME DL day?

Not sure, will have to check the board and see what i havent done in awhile, i might just go with straight up DLs, dunno, will figure that out when i get there i guess....hopefully this friggin head cold will be gone......

Very nice three board pressing, Chris! Can't wait to see your shirted bench in competition... should be about the same as your three board...
