I met up with Maura Shuttleworth... training partner and bench press champion. She is a god-send. A perfect partner for me... I do not love bench press, but Maura does.
It was our light bench press day. I got some advice from Mark Reifkind regarding my bench press last week. My form is quite nice... but I need to work on my power and speed. I will be focusing on pausing every rep and blasting the bar off my chest. Easier said than done...LOL. Here is how it all went down...
~Presses at 75lbs my focus was on blasting the bar up after a short pause. The presses at 95lbs, got press commands from Maura, so there was a definite pause on each.
Seated Plate Raises
3 sets of 5
~Maura had to talk me into these... I was ready to go home.
My energy was really low. Everything was difficult. I was sad when the workout was over... but happy to go home to my bed.
