Jonathan Byrd 6/23/2014 Training Log

Training to improve on my best competition lifts of 1040 squat, 705 bench, and 730 deadlift. Currently working my way down to the 275 class.

Goal: This is week two of my offseason prep. I will be competing at the WPC Worlds in November as bench only, but with no full meet plans currently. I want to use this offseason cycle to bring up some weak points, mostly my left pec. I have not pushed much full range raw work since the pec reattachment, so it will be a slow progress. Yesterdays training went like this.

floor press
3×5@bar
3×5@135
3×5@135 plus 80lbs in chain rest of way out
1×5@185
1×5@225
1×5@275
1×3@315
1×1@335
incline dumbbell press 3×8
double arm band push downs 3×30

I have only done floor press prior to this a few times and hated it. I also really dont like benching with chains. Why? Because I suck at both, all the more reason I need to work them in!
