29 Dec Zane Geeting, Sunday afternoon shirted benching
I’m currently training to make my comeback to the platform at the XPC finals at the Arnold Classic. Between now and then I’ll be doing Dan Dalenberg’s push/pull meet here in MI, in Jan.
Sunday afternoon was the first time I’ve had a bench shirt on in quite a while. I did have some luck with a loose one several months back, and was able to handle 405 pain free. I went back to that same loose shirt for this session, to see how things felt. Here’s what I did:
Fat man rows and push ups
warm up to 275×1 raw, then…
Loose bench shirt
365×3- 2.5 board
405×3- 2.5 board
-Not bad at all, no pain. Will go up from here, next week.
Close grip 3 board, raw
3×3 up to 315×3
Seated DB OHP
3×10, up to 90 lb. DB’s
Single arm band pushdowns
3×12 w/average band, ea. arm
Band pull aparts
3×20-25 w/light band
That was the end of it. Something to keep in mind as you read this, is that everything is being done extremely light here. I’m probably capable of a 400 raw bench still if my pec could hold up to it. Its not worth it for me to risk it though as it starts to cramp up with weights over 300. I’ll never do a big raw bench in competition again because of the injury, so its not worth it to risk it at all in training.[share title=”Share this Article” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” reddit=”true” email=”true”][author title=”About the Author”]
