PRESS+ Thursday: Bench is Boring

I'M SORRY, but it just is. I can't get excited about it... at least not until I'm back up to where I was in 2015. Till then, all these reps just feel insubstantial. Even though I'm pretty sure this is a new personal record for paused reps at this weight.

After the first triple I knew I couldn't do another triple, so stopped at two. But I went for a third rep with my final set. I completed it with assistance from Sam and Jon, so it wasn't a failed rep technically... but obviously I'm not counting it.

And I'm glad I've only programmed doubles of 155 kilos for next week and singles of 162.5 kilos the week after. I know I couldn't handle any more than that.
