MAX Bench Press (140#)

Decline Bench Press

3 Sets

  • MAX Decline Bench Press (175#)
  • 3:00 Rest

I did 15-15-10. On the first set I hit the j-cups like three times, so had to move the bench further away after that. Then on the final set, the bench kind of broke for declines. That was the end of that! Too bad because we really liked the decline, with the different feel.

Bench Press

  • 3 Sets
    • MAX Bench Press (145#)
    • 3:00 Rest
  • 3 Sets
    • MAX Bench Press (125#)
    • 3:00 Rest

I got 14 each time with 145 and 20 each time with 125. The first few reps my body kept trying to go through the decline range of motion. Very weird!!

6 Sets

  • 12 EZ Bar Skull Crushers (51#)
  • 1:00 Rest
