bench day!

Posted: July 31, 2012 by squat1000 in Athlete Blogs

Felt pretty good today! When I woke up I drank a 5-hour energy and I think that worked well. Decided to de-load a little today with higher reps and less weight. It all felt pretty easy.. Anthony, (mybrother) was a little shocked when I told him we were doing 8 reps. hehe 🙂 but he was a trooper and powered through it! Of course its only like his third real training week back and hes already getting back up to where he needs to be. Must be nice to just naturally be a powerhouse…
