Wendler cycle 6 week 2/Bench

201.7 this early mornin. No time for a selfie, had to hit the pavement. Gains were to be gained!

Warm Up: 15 min on elliptical.

Bench press



I got 4
DC 3-3-3


There was no way I was going to get another rep from that last set. I would have hit failure so hard. But, I've never pushed 205 this many times before, and definitely not at this body weight. The DC went great, too. Some struggle bus, but I nailed the lock out.

Overhead Press



At least 3
DC 2-2-2


These were hard, no doubt about it. I've almost hit the ceiling, I can tell. I'm going to have to start rethinking things, moving them to a different day, or back track until I'm able to hit these numbers. We will see.

Incline press
80x5
75x5x4

So much power! I nailed this today. Great reps, great weight, lots of great things. I'm going to do 2 sets of 80's next time, with 3 sets of 70's to follow. Looking forward to it.

Dips
57.5
5x6

So strong these dips be.

Skull crushers
90lbs
5x11

Nailed them.

Ab crunches
190
5x9

Pull ups
15lbs x 8


15 min on elliptical.

Overall, a monster workout that I dominated. Increased reps and weight, got a great pump and felt wonderful during the whole workout. I love when a workout comes together.
