Benching with The Bench Queen...

Wednesday is bench day for Maura and me. Here is how it all went down...

Bench Press
65X7
85X5
100X1
105X1
105X1
Maura's Mean Pause Presses
90X3
85X3
~PR at 105lbs. I tried to pause with every press. Extra long pauses for the last two sets.

Face Pulls
50lbsX10
60X10
60X10
50X10
40X10

Supported Rows
45X8X4

OH Press with KB's
5L/5RX2 - 16kg
5L/5RX1 - 12kg

I warmed up with some swings and snatches with my KB class. Then Maura put me through a mean workout. I am still struggling with my main short coming... maintaining tension through out the entire exercise. My form is improving... and I am feeling more confident on the bench press.

Great job hitting a PR bench today! You had more in you too!

I think we have to give Shawn credit for those mean pause benches!

Thanks Maura! I would still be pressing 95lbs if it wasn't for your suggestion! LOL!

So, should call it "Shawn's Mean Pause Presses"?
