  1. You could try some micro loads. I have 1/2 pound, 1/4 pound, and 1.25 pound plates. I find I can go a long time at those small increments before resetting.


  2. Reset add some foam rolling and get after it

    Hey Sinister. I think I'm just going to suck it up & reset. I really want to bench 300 lb, but I'd also like to do it on a regular basis as part of my program rather than just a 1 time thing.

    That's some sound advice dude, thanks.

  7. Yeah, if you're ready, just reset. I reset on my bench and OHP, and squat. I see resetting again late spring early summer again. Or else I might try conjugate for a while. It's been some time since I've done a conjugate template.
