Tried to bench a couple times this weekend, couldn't nail it down. Those inclines with too close of a grip really did a number on my shoulders. So today after trying to work up:
Good time to jump on the JM reset bandwagon. I was letting my elbows drift toward the floor too much at 185.
And done. At the very least, I have a big upper body pump from all of the reppage. I'll hit speedy benches this week, also switching to more elbow friendly squatting until after the 6th

Should mention also that sleeping on a couch and trying to ride a stand-up jetski for the first time in four years is not conducive to having good days in the gym. But the mini vacation was needed, so I'll take the tradeoff.

Box Squats against greens
275X2 belt only (good weight for raw speedwork)
Add wraps, remove box
Filling out my briefs more lately, weight is 235. Hard to groove and make it to the box in briefs today, even though I was really dialed in raw. Held the bar high today. Super easy on my shoulders and elbow.
Free squat in briefs was weird. We'll leave it alone.
Pull against greens underfoot
Finally made some headway speeding up my setup and spending less time in position. I've been thinking too much of late, which always puts my pulls in the crapper. That's all I had time for, Might pull again tomorrow.

Good job on the squats man. I wish i could touch a box or hit parallel with anything under 550 in my briefs lol

Do you find that your knees shoot in with really tight Ace gear? I had to move up a size after I outgrew my first pair and they were shooting my knees in out of the hole.

Rough day in the shed today. Looking to make something go right, but nothing would.
Work up raw
365X2 off 2 board
Add shirt (sleeves twisted and collar pulled down)
405 float x1
455 float x1
475 float at 1.5 boards (taken)
495 unracked then taken
Only had two spotters, so spotters took 475 at their discretion. 495 I didn't chalk my hands and they were sliding outward, so I had them take it. If I could get the technique down with the shirt set like this, I could hit a really big number.
Deadlift (was planning on doing a full deadlift session)
Then, inexplicably, I was trying to fix some form stuff and could not get the bar to leave the floor at 455. Frustrating.
On my last set, my spud straps wrapped around the bar and distracted me on the first rep causing the rep to be very poor compared to my 275 set, so I racked it and chalked it up as a bad day.
Leaving for South Carolina tomorrow for a few days, so I'll be headed to the compound to see if I can't do something right in the gym for a change. I think it's time to run a cycle of cube boss after I bench on the 6th. I need to refocus.

Woo for the compound! and nice front squat.
Did you use that Rage X I sent?
