Decent day. Set a personal best of 285×1 bench press.

The top set of 265×5 was OK – didn’t like how the bar moved. My shoulders and arms just felt off and unhappy; hard to see in the video, but it’s there. So I figured I could take the Joker @ 285 and that went ok. I had been thinking about attempting 300, if things felt good — and they didn’t feel good enough to bother. Soon tho… 

Things overall feel a little sluggish. Hard to tell if it’s me or just because it’s 6th cycle and weights are getting heavier and I’m getting more beat up. Been many weeks.

Everything else is what it is. Just assistance work.
