I’ve been killing it on the bench and my numbers on bench have been going up lately. Feels great to be killing it on bench. Earlier at the gym this morning, I’m starting to do 135 lbs. for more reps finally. Since today, I just did a 150 lb. for a triple, I thought to myself: “If I can smash a 150 lb. for a triple, I could probably do 160 for a single so lets try that”.
I ended my bench session with a 160 lbs. single. I did that number for two sets and both of them were easy.
Yep. I’m on the road to a 200 lb. bench and I might be able to make it in time before the Aug. 30th powerlifting meet at Albany Strength. We’ll see.
If I can do a 160 lb. heavy single then my estimated pr. could be about 170 lbs. so I’m just about there at 200 lbs.
I used to hate benching but I’ve been loving it more and more. Will I be able to make it to a 200 lb. bench this summer? I’m gonna try but we’ll see how it goes. Just gotta keep working and working, stay consistent.
Enjoy the video.
