So, back in December I was all excited about benching 135. But, that was on the smith machine. te he he he . . did I not mention that ?! . . oh . .
Well, as we all know that definitely does not translate into the free bar. So, I am off to conquer that next. Grrr!
Yesterday I managed 3 sets of 7-10 reps with 85lbs. I didn't have a spotter so I had to be carfeul. This will have to be slow, steady and safe progress.
I was surprised by my control and abiltity, so next week I will take a deep breath and put the 25lb plates on that bar for a total of 95lbs!
I remember a couple years ago when I thought I was the shizzle for benching 95lbs with the smith machine LOL!
