bench-press[1]Since I missed my normal Monday bench press session with my buddy I started one today, figuring he just went at it without me yesterday.  When he showed up I was already at my 1 rep weights.  He said he didn’t bench because I wasn’t there so he hopped in.

Since I was already ahead of him in reps I just dropped down a bit in weight and kept doing additional sets until he caught up.  It added up to the most bench press reps I have probably done in at least 10 years.  I am pretty sure my recollection of all the sets and numbers will be less than perfect. In total I pressed over 12,000 pounds off my chest during the workout.
