Byrd- 810 1board Bench

Currently working my way down in weight to lift in the 275 class at the XPC Finals. Looking to improve on my all-time best lifts of 1040, 725, and 730lbs. I am also taking on additional online clients for personalized training. Feel free to email me at if you are interested.

Well last weeks bench completely sucked ass! 765 off the 2board was all I could handle and it damn near killed me. I was determined not to let one bad week screw over my training. This week the plan was to work everything down to the one board. I want to feel comfortable down around my chest in the shirt, I don’t want it to be a shock on meet day.

bar x lots
shirt on
1×1@515 3board
1×1@605 1board
1×1@700 1board
1×1@745 1board
1×1@810 1board PR

3×20 band push downs
3×10 band fly

I will say that my back is toast! I feel beat up and worn down, but there is a plan in place! I will get some quality rest and recovery this week and next Saturday I will take the biggest squats of the cycle.
