Going on a 4-day vacation to Portland to visit the girlfriend so I got this done today. Not gonna get too much sleep tonight what with waking up at 4:30 when it's already almost midnight, so I probably should have taken it easy but...nah. 

Bench press
262 x 3
297 x 3
332 x 3
Haven't been getting much sleep the past two days and it's a day earlier than normal so to hit my minimum was great. My pre-workout ritual of coffee, cookie whey protein, and strongman videos really get me fired the hell up. Mariusz screaming in victory was in my head the entire time. Last rep was a real struggle but I bet that lifting 332 for so agonizingly long will make me stronger.

By the way, benching hurt my fucking knee. Jesus.

Close-grip bench press
252 x 4 x 10

Band rows
20, 20, 20, 20

Curls, 50 lb kettlebell skullcrushers and band tricep extensions, Ball Sac band chest flyes, rear-delts

Chest flyes? Yep, I've been unhappy with my small chest for years from benching powerlifter-style and not isolating it when it used to be my better bodyparts in my teens:

As long as I'm eating a lot I'll throw some chest stuff in. It should help my pec-tendons get stronger, too.
