Another crappy snow storm puked a substantial amount of snow on us again so plenty of shoveling was done yesterday and today. Since my back was pretty achy from it all, and the gym is closed Saturday for Christmas, I made the decision today to just hit things hard over 2 workouts this week - bench tonight, squats Thursday.
The target for bench this cycle for a single was 355, my old PR prior to last cycle. I wasn’t feeling super on bench, but ended up hitting 355 for 2 singles, then finished 355 off with a double, which is a 2rm PR. Moved down to 335 and 315 for more work. Solid benching effort. After bench I did various back and tricep accessory work. I figured out how to link the 2 stacks together on the Freemotion monstrosity to make some movements more difficult (ie: kneeling one arm lat rows), which was nice.
