This weeks bench goal was simply to work a little in the shirt. I am down a little more than 15lbs, so I was worried that I would not have a shirt that would fit me.

Bench:
3×5@bar
2×5@135
1×3@275
1×3@315
2board
1×1@405
added shirt
3board
1×2@495
2board
1×2@585
1×1@675
1×1@705
1×1@745 PR

I was pretty tired after being in the shirt, so I shut it down and didn’t do any auxiliary work. I will throw a few extra things in on Wednesday. Overall I am very happy where my shirted bench is at, especially with the weight loss. I have plenty of time before the WPC Worlds, but knowing that I have a shirt that can still fit is a big relief.
