Monday’s Workout – Push

  • Weighted Dips* (BW=149 lbs + 135 lbs), 5 sets x 7 reps
  • Partial Rep Bench Press (225 lbs), 4 sets x 5 reps
  • Standing Shoulder Press (130 lbs), 4 sets x 5 reps
  • Close-grip Bench Press (140 lbs), 2 sets x 12 reps


* The dips felt much easier today compared to my last training session. I only had a small amount of difficulty completing the seventh rep on the last set. I believe the partial rep bench presses have dramatically improved my strength in the top portion of the movement in a short period of time.
