07/21 DE Bench-Back to Work

Speed Bench 175x8x3
Close Grip 4 Board Press 275x6, 315x4x6
BB Bent Row (Mid Chest)135x12, 175x10, 185x8
Mini Band Pull-Aparts 3x15

Felt good to get back into the basement, i am going to take it easy for the next couple of weeks and let everything heal properly. My focus on this next block of training will be to really push the training poundages in the broadest sense by adding in SE work every other week instead of speed work. I feel i still need the speed work as i am still a novice lifter and must train the body to fire correctly when asked to do so. I personally feel this approach will be good for me as it will give me more time under heavier weights with the big three. Here is the basic scheme:




Like i said, its good to be back training and i am looking forward to competing again. Training seems a bit more fun when you have a concrete goal in mind, so on that note.....whats your goal?

How's the groin feeling? Nice to be back at it, isn't it?

Still a bit tender but on the mend. Will just keep the stance a bit narrower for safety's sake....and yes, it is nice to be back in training...good stuff.......

hate to ask questions...but if you don't know you ask....that is my saying....what does SE etc... mean on your card???

SE is Submaximal Effort, i.e you work in the 70-80% range of your max. Gives you a chance to hypertrophy as well as develop strength, i nice little change up to the DE.......
