Busting the bench

10809883_1482395212021319_721556391_a[1]Today I had one of my best numbers benching in a loooong time.  The 230 pound top end wasn’t that big of a deal but the reps I got at lower weights were the highest I have racked up in recent memory.

For my last burnout set at 135 pounds I did dead stop reps where the bar is literally laying across your chest for a second or so before you begin pushing.  It’s a good way to develop your power low in the movement.
