Decline-Bench-Press[1]I had a weekend that was filled with a lot of home labor, enough that I didn’t even feel up to running or riding yesterday.  I didn’t have very high goals going into chest day at the gym.  I was surprised that I actually felt relatively strong, getting 4 reps with 95 pound dumbbell chest press and a smooth and controlled rep at 225 on the decline bench at the very end of the workout. I felt like I could have gone higher if I had more time.

More than likely it is just part of the monthly strength variations my body seems to go through but it was a good day for the high end to kick in.
