Making a Mess of the Press

TONIGHT was a little disappointing. It's not going to jeopardise the entire program, what I did. But it wasn't the right thing to do. The right thing to do was 13 reps of 100 kilos on bench - 13 reps only. I misread the template and busted out 12, racked it, realised I'd fucked it up, and pressed it for a double less than a minute later. Then, a minute later, I did another double. And another double a minute after that.

Why did I do this? Because I was pissed about missing that last repetition. But I should have stopped after the first double and this is why, when it came to axle overhead press, I couldn't perform the required reps. Not by a long shot.

When I knew it was done I dropped the weight to 55 and repped it out. As I said, this won't have ruined the program as it's still early. But I learned a valuable lesson tonight about sticking to what I've set for myself.
