30 Dec Driggers, Benching 12-29-2014. I hit the wall!
Last week I apologized for doubling up on the post. Since I didn’t learn my lesson I will just not apologize this time.
In my previous post I spoke about the herniated disc at C6-C7 that has been giving me a problem over the last few months. I though I found an answer with the cambered bar, but that wasn’t the case. I came in the gym last night with my left side feeling sore and tight. The cambered bar spared me a headache, but left me feeling like I was a day out of training chest before I even started benching.
This is how it went:
Benching with feet up:
315 x 5 for 3 sets
Not bad considering how I felt. This was my second set. The first set was horrible, but I didn’t film it.
I moved to some medium grip singles:
Have you ever heard the expression “Hitting the wall”? No, not your girlfriend talking about her ex. This is a gym expression. Well, that”s what happened in the next video. I hardly have words for how fast this went down hill.
I’ll just let the video speak for itself.
I moved on to some incline DB presses:
70 x 12 for 3 sets
40 x 12 for 3 sets
80 x 10 for 3 sets
My left tricep was refusing to fire at this point.
I think I need to bring the rocker back in
