    ME bench day 2/6/11

    warmup with foam roller barx10
    barx5
    135x5
    185x5
    225x5
    275x4
    315x1
    365x3 4 board
    405x1 4 board
    got in shirt, first time in double katana with triple sleeves. This thing is a little crazy
    455x2 4 board
    took 495 to a 3 board, dumped it into the rack trying to touch.
    shirt is very very tight, I can barely get my index fingers out to the rings.
    If I decide to keep training in it, its going to be tough.

    dips
    bodyweightx6x4
    tricep pressdowns
    75x6
    50x8x2
    overhead tricep extensions
    50x10x2

    pretty good work today, I thought I would get another press in the shirt, but its pretty unforgiving and I decided to shut it down.

    2/13/11 ME bench

    barx8x2
    135x5
    225x5
    275x3
    315x1
    365x1 3 board
    405x1 4 board

    got in SDP all work done off 3 board
    455x2
    500x1
    550, got out of the groove, touched too low, couldnt get it off the board.
    550 again, pressed good, after I racked it the guys said I diddnt fully lock out my right arm. I thought I was locked and held the weight at the top. Ill take it though, good press, first time over 500

    either way, you could be getting so much more. For me at least in the past, if I could press it off a board, I could press it off my chest, so we will see what happens
