img_107297_bench-press-challenge-bodyweight-x-reps[1]Today at the gym I decided to keep most of my bench press reps right around my current bodyweight of 185 pounds.  I felt like I cranked out some decent numbers. Once again I had one of my trusted spotters to make sure I was able to work into the muscle failure zone which pays dividends down the road.

I supersetted the bench reps with sets of 10 pull ups which resulted in a pretty solid push pull work out. The bench press reps were chest to full extension instead of the chest to 8 inches off my chest reps I used to do a decade ago.
