Had a decent raw squat day on monday, so I came in tuesday just looking to get some more volume in. I was supposed to be setting up a new office at work, but the new location wasnt ready so I decided to head down to baystate to train with BTM, Ben, peach and of course Big R. Shaina was there too squatting in gear which looks fun.
I didnt even bring my warm pants and knee sleeves, so of course all these sets felt miserable.
I havent benched with a wide grip raw since 2009, when BTM administered the gorillapin bench program on me and I had partial tears in both pecs. After missing 485 with a close grip the other day, the guys in the gym were telling me Im an idiot and how much more I would bench if I went wide. So after 4 years of benching only close and super close grips I was ready to test the waters.
I did alot of warm ups, and obviously was benching two days in a row so I didnt push it. I felt good, and the stroke was short. Definitely going to see what happens when I increase the weight.
These were dumb and now my back hurts. I do my shrugs strict, with no air humps so I do weights that peach does.
573 3 sets of 10
I had 6 scoops of synergy in the midst of this workout, but was really hungry at the end so that was it for the day.
