Excellent workout. With my hip and elbows rested after doing only a light deload workout Monday I went after squats and bench hard today. I did not squat at all last week but they felt pretty solid. Ended up doing a solid 600 but I could feel my hip straining on that effort so I shut squats down. I am satisfied with the 600 effort after not having more than 550 on my back over the last four months.
Moved on to bench and the elbow was hurting right away so I did some extra warmup sets with the bar/135. Threw on the sleeves and went after it and ended up hitting a paused 380 for a 10lb PR. Tried 385 and hit the pegs on the way up and just could not recover it. Would have had it otherwise. Did slingshot bench afterwards and beat my previous 440 PR with efforts at 450 and 460. Real pleased with how things went. Did a set at 225 on decline and I was done.
