So today my buddy and I jumped back to dumbbell chest press as we are hoping to alternate between dumbbell and barbell chest work every other week. When I got the 100 pounders up for 2 reps I thought I broke new ground. For some reason I had it in my head I topped out with 95’s two weeks ago. A quick check of the blog confirmed I did get the 100’s up for 2 reps two weeks ago as well.
Today felt harder because I did more reps leading up to triple digits, getting six reps with the 90 pounders and then four with 95 in each hand. Last time I did it I went from 4 reps at 90 straight to the 100’s.
Anyway I felt half decent with only some mild shoulder discomfort during the session which we wrapped up again with some decline barbell bench press action.
