I do not love the bench press. If you know me... you already know my dislike for bench press. Lucky for me, my training partner is the bench press champion or I would never be a powerlifter at all. Tonight Maura and I got under the bar for some bench pressing, here is how it went down for me...
~Not a good night for me. My right shoulder is acting bad, giving me pain from hand off to lock out. I did have one good set, the second to last set with 95lbs. The rest pretty much sucked and I not only went light, but I ended the workout early.
~The first set sucked, my right shoulder hurt. Second set felt great, third set was alright, fourth set was great.
I tried to do some triceps work, but, I was done. Pain from my shoulder was radiating up my shoulder to my neck and face. Such as life. I am just barely a three lift lifter. Lucky I learned to arch, or I would never bench press.
I am planning a visit to Mike Nelson. I will post the results. Hopefully I can get the shoulder thing worked out.
