Today went well. Not much to say other than that.

Worked to keep rest periods to 2 minutes (except during bench press, 3 minutes). Working 2/fail. I am getting much better about estimating that, and it’s really good when you hit it because the way the templates are structured, if you hit it right it makes for fairly consistent sets. It can be amazing what 1 more rep closer to true failure can take out of you and how much it can destroy later sets (and getting in volume).

One take-home is working on my eye positions, especially when benching. I noticed when benching my eyes tend to look “downward”, and as a result so goes my bar path. I am working on looking more up (trying to see my forehead, if you will), so that I can have a better bar path. Just like when driving a motorcycle, the bike goes where you look? Same with the bar.
