08/04 ME Bench

Floor Press 275x5x3
SSB Triceps Ext 115x4x8
Pull Ups Bwx6, BW+15lbsx4x4
KB Side Swings 33x4x8

Decent day, i dont generally lift that well at 3 in the afternoon and this 80% felt more like 95% of my max on this movement. God i hate Floor Presses!!! All reps had a 2-3 sec pause at the bottom and shot up like cold molasses, did i mention i hate floor presses? The SSB Ext's were new obviously because i just got this bar yesterday and had to use it for something. Thanks to Paul Childress for this gem of an exercise... somehow the load gets placed differently than a standard bar and the guns ballooned to 18's i swear.....the fuckers hurt and the skin felt like bursting, hell the weight wasnt anything to write home to mom about, what up with that shit?......the pull up sucked as my left bicep got tweaked during preparation for lifting (i lifted a loaded bar and curled it to the rack without being warmed up, Nimrod!!!) By the time i got to KB's i was sapped, its still humid in the basement and all motivation seems to leave my body after the first two movements, but then i thought about my one true inspiration, Benji, and i perservered.....i mean really, there you have a friggin mutt of a dog saving lives when the chips were down, what more could you ask for? Fucking Lassie had a network of support, what did Benji have? a bad case of fleas and diarrhea from eating garbage, Rock On Benji!!!!

Good shit man. It's been a while since I was on a powerlifting program...I loved it, but I wanted to work on mass a little more exclusively lately. Heavy weights are tempting though...so tempting that I think I'm going back to something like that. ME good mornings are just too much fucking fun.

I'm also glad you dig the blog. My goal is getting a book out eventually. We'll see.

Janoski,
Thanks for stopping by, good luck on the book, one of these days i would like to compile my crap into a book of some sort, got some good stories that probably should be told......

so you don't like floor presses...I have to admitt I love them....I really think they work well and with only doing the reps of 5, 3, 3 they go quick....
