Light bench day.

Nothing major to report.

I did dump lunges tho. I go see the doc today to get the results of my MRI on my knees, so we’ll see how that falls out. My knees were not feeling hot today so I opted to skip the lunges and did some additional back work instead. Will this be my norm? All depends upon the doc.

One thing I will say. I am debating upping my BBB percentage. 50% is just a good starting metric, but it can be anywhere between 40-60% depending. Plus, there’s nothing saying you MUST use the same across the board: might squat at 50% but bench at 60%. The benching feels just WAY too light, so I am debating upping it.
