    Great WO today short but intense chest/rear delt wo.

    Haven't benched in a long as time so I decided to test myself a bit.

    Warmup 10 min

    Flat BB BP
    135x22
    185x12 easy
    205x12 easy
    225x10

    All reps were perfect form and slow controlled negatives. Overall I was pleased. The last time I hopped on a bench was this time last year and my last set was 205 for 7-8 I think. Want red to push strength a a bit more but I'm a puss c and I was also the only one in the gym.

    Incline Smith BB press
    165x12
    185x10
    185x8 drop 135 wide x15

    Low Cable pulls these hit my upper chest like crazy.
    3x15

    Ladder push-up
    Low 42 reps
    Med 20
    Hi 20 I think I honestly just went till I couldn't do anymore

    I did these stretcher band things I saw in breezys thread after my ladder push-ups

    HIIT 10m

    Chest is swollen :-)

    I wouldn't worry about not being able to really push it on bench. Better safe than stuck under a 225+ lb. barbell.

    I know you bodybuild, but if you're going to do flat barbell you should press like a powerlifter, it will save you a lot of aches and pains down the road.

    A good series by Dave Tate is "so you think you can bench"

    He has one for squats and deadlift too.

    Very good videos very well worth your time

    Agreed I was just merely humoring myself to see where I was at.

    Try this with a seated incline bench Bean. Isolates the chest even more

    I used to do these as well- You set the cables down low and raise the cables to about chin level with your palms facing up? I found another good way of doing them too bro. Try using dumbbells on an inclined chair setting (> 45 degree). Start with them hanging like your doing curls, but do like a "raise up" fly with them. Try it out if you want. I'd start with a lower weight (20-30lb DB's) I love the upper inner chest burn
