Comments:

* I hit the pin of the power rack on the second rep and it literally killed my set. I wish I had a spotter but I don’t so I have to rely on the safety pins of the power rack instead. It is a difficult thing to do touch-n-go reps this way as I need to have the pins set at chest height and in order to avoid hitting them I have to use perfect form.

Comments:

* This is a new record for me in the paused bench press. I have gone as heavy as 5 sets x 3 reps with 250 lbs doing touch-n-go reps. The paused bench press is a competition style bench press in which I have to place the bar on my chest at perfect rest before pressing the weight back up.

Comments:

* I felt my left shoulder pop out on the third rep. However, even if my shoulder didn’t give out I was already quite fatigued and may not have been able to squeeze out this extra rep anyways. The good news is that my shoulder doesn’t hurt when I feel it pop out and doesn’t influence my recovery. I just want to be sure I don’t over extend myself and sustain another injury.
