08/30/07 ME Bench

2 Board Press w/Chains 135x5, 185x5, 225x3, 275x3, 315x2x3, 335x3
Tate Presses 40x3x15
Ano Rows 120x3x8

Not too bad a night considering I rearranged my gym before lifting, so I was quite a sweaty mess starting out. That and the friggin shoulder was tweakin for some reason.

The 2 board press with chains was done a bit differently for this mini cycle. I have them set up so they are totally off the ground at lockout and barely deloaded at the bottom. This made stabilizing the bar quite a task. Definitely hits the supporting musculature like a mother. Reps were pretty good, definitely fellt like I worked, will up the weight and volume next week in preparation for a new PR in the third week of this movement.

Tate Presses good, got the blood flowing, but the shoulder got tweaked a bit doing these, hence the lack of direct shoulder work to round out the evening. Ano rows were quite nice as well. Thats about it folks, nothing too fancy....

Keep it Dark, Keep it Heavy...
