I might be coming down with a cold and didn’t have as much energy as I normally do. I failed again in the bench press and am getting discouraged. Nevertheless, this is still the strongest I have been in the incline bench press in a long time.

I am starting to believe the reason is simply because I have been doing multiple sets of this exercise which helps to practice the lift. Practice make perfect.

In contrast I haven’t been doing that well in the bench press and feel that it is time to apply the same approach. The strongest I have been in the bench press results from doing 5 sets of 5 reps in that exercise which allows for adequate practice.

I am starting to learn that each movement takes time to master no different than a golf player perfecting their swing through countless repetitions.
