Two more personal records smashed!

With my right shoulder acting up, yesterday’s workout (chest/triceps) was a bit of a concern. Thankfully my shoulder did not protest at all during my many bench press warm-up sets, and so I proceeded with my heavy working sets as usual…

Yesterday was my very last chest/triceps bulking workout, so I decided to attempt a couple of PRs. I added 5 pounds to my flat bench press and broke my all-time best personal record for the fourth consecutive week! I’ve now added a total of 30 pounds to my previous all-time best bench press record (for three sets of 10-12 reps), and I’ve done it at 17 pounds less bodyweight (219 pounds now vs. 236 pounds in 2006 when I set the old PR). I also broke my all-time best incline bench press PR yesterday.

I am very, very happy with how the final week of my bulk is going so far. I’ll be honest, it has been a struggle. As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been feeling pretty tired and beat up after 17 weeks of very hard, very intense training. Yesterday was no exception. I’ve had to dig deep to make these last couple of workouts worthy send-offs to my best bulk yet.

I’ve got today off from training, and I’m very happy about that. I need the rest because Thursday and Friday are my final two bulking workouts (with the exception of my supplemental traps workout on Sunday), and I’ve got to make them great.
