This set of 1 was the last of the 3 singles. I did a set of 2 earlier because I felt like I could. Since I’m getting close to showtime, I knew practicing my singles would be best. Feels good to train at a weight that was once your opener a year ago.

Bench few up today. Was really happy with this week considering I started cutting back my carbs. I’ve also learned for the first time to push out my elbows on the way up. Big difference.

Worked up to 550 today. Possible opener, but days like today I’m not sure. It took a long time today to get up to it, but I got it done. I believe it came down to the training atmosphere. Also, the fact that I have reduced my carbs throughout the week might have something to do with it. Took 3 naps yesterday which I think helped, but took more will power to get this weight up, but it went. One more week of heavy training to go. I’m gettin’ pumped!!
