Christmas Eve training.

Bench press:
230 x 5
265 x 5
300 x 8
• Upper-body was sore so I anticipated doing only 5, but the bar felt light.

Bent-over rows:
225 x 15, 12, 15, 12

Incline bench press:
205 x 10, 10, 10
• The outer edge of my left hand hurt when gripping to remove my wrist cloths. Do more hand extension exercises (e.g. with broccoli bands).

Dumbbell press:
35s x 30
25s x 25
• Very slow and wide to promote chest hypertrophy, something I took from Wade Johnson. Harder than I thought, amazingly. Forearms felt fried.

Swiss bar preacher curls:
85 x 13

Kettlebell rows:
50 x 50

Band pull-aparts:

A man was training his son in the gym today and he commented in a complimentary fashion to him how long my warm-up was, which prompted me chat him up. He said my legs look like tree trunks.
