There's really something wrong with me

Seriously, I am mentally challenged when it comes to my own training. It might be along the lines of Alzheimer's. I benched last night and felt extraordinarily strong. I was just playing around and took 550. It felt better than it ever has. I was talking to the guys about how Josh Bryant mentioned he might only have me bench once a week when he starts my programming.

So I'm going on and on that I felt great just benching on Friday this week and this might be the secret to breaking my recent plateau. Yeah, I benched on Monday also, but that fact eluded me completely me at the time. I guess this is where SFW comes in to play. I may never be able to work smart (on my own at least), but I do work hard.

It's quite possible people are far better off doing what I tell them to do versus what I actually do. That's why I will be glad to turn my programming over to Josh.

Back to the 550 bench. I did move my grip in a bit and benched a little higher on my chest/sternum. It was nice that Rhodes showed up last night. He helped me with a few things. The new form might not have worked out as well without him. Specifically, he kept cuing me to meet the bar. I fall into a habit of sinking and heaving. With that, I am excited to lift at a charity bench event next Sunday. It will be fun to test a little of this out.

So, I will bench next week and what happens will happen. It's a non sanctioned charity event so the number doesn't really matter. Who knows what I will do training wise before then. Even if I knew, chances are I wouldn't remember anyway.
