Jonathan Byrd Week 3 Offseason Raw Bench

Coming to an end of the short offseason work. Just a deload and maybe one heavy day left to reach some basic goals. This week I did some max width grip raw benching just to see how the pec would react. That is my preferred grip, and would love to be there raw. The good news was that I felt strong and had no pain. The other side of that is that the days following I can really tell that spot of my chest is really weak. With that being said I will continue to work it some with lighter weights as I prep for the Arnold.

2×100000000 at bar
wide grip (max)

100 total band push downs.

Called it there as I am fighting off an upper respiratory infection. I am on the upswing of it now, so should be ready to push the squat this weekend.
