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:

* My grip broke. I am not sure why I had the grip strength to do this my last workout but today I seamed to lack the grip strength. The only difference is that I did a few triples on some of my warm-up sets. As a result I decided to drop the weight down and do some reps.

Comments:

* I decided to start doing one of my old favorites again. I started out light and used to chin with 75 lbs for 3 sets x 5 reps. I will be adding weight each workout to this exercise and expect a fast increase in strength in this movement because of muscle memory.
