My buddy was back from his trip so I agreed to join him in a bench press session, despite just doing the movement on Monday. You may recall me whining about feeling weak during Monday’s session, I could barely get 225 off my chest and my reps at lower numbers were down at least 25% as well.
Well for some reason 72 hours made a big difference in my pushing strength. My numbers were markedly better at every step of the ladder. Who knows?
