31 Mar Byrd: Week 3 Offseason bench
Eventually I will get enough balls to post a pic of where my body sits currently. If you have read my article on my weight loss, then you know that I have been working now for nearly a year to get my body weight down. My weight started at a high of 323, and currently sitting about 260lbs. I have set the goal to get off as much fat as I can and rebound carrying as much muscle as possible to lift in the 275 class. I have put my trust in both Brian and Scott to help me reach my goals.
Well only having one working pec, my bench sucks already. Add in the body weight change, the much higher tempo, and it really sucks! This week I worked up to something fairly light vs an orange band, then very high tempo reps off boards.
2×5@135 plus band
1×1@225 plus band
1×1@245 plus band
3×2@275 plus band
Took band off
close grip about 1 minute rest between each set
1×10 off 3board, then 5 off 1board@225
1×10@225 off 2 board
1×10@225 full range
Looking at it, it doesnt seem like much on paper. All I know is the tempo is kicking my ass, and I will be happy when I get back into full on gear whore mode and add 20lbs back to my frame!
