I got a bit fancy on the assistance. I still did my BBB, but I’ve always wanted to include a bit more pressing to improve upon my bench.
Bench: 5×70, 5×85, 3×100 + 3×120, 3×135, 7×155 Rep PR
I actually got to 8 reps, but I pretty much stalled halfway up and spotter had to assist me up to re-rack. Pretty happy I got to 7 reps on my own. One thing I didn’t like was that when I was really struggling to get the bar up, I noticed that I was sort of trying to sort of press with my shoulders by shrugging and almost rolling my right side upward towards the bar. I’ve addressed a number of times before that I think I’ve developed a minor “imbalance”, if you will, of my pressing due to my right arm / lats / upper back working a bit harder. It’s fairly noticeable too- my right arm is actually burning while my left side feels unhindered.
BBB Bench: 5x10x85
Pretty easy. I actually used some varying grips here- 2 sets of narrow, 1 regular, 2 wide.
