5/3/1 Close Grip Bench. 3+ Day.

ass

Today started pretty well. I wanted 9 reps for my final set at 255lbs (250lbs x 8 last cycle) and I got 10, so that rocks. But I pushed it pretty hard and sort of put a damper on the rest of the workout. My left triceps were on fire and kept collapsing on the descent for my heavier assistance work (300x1, 305x1, 300x2, 300x1), so I cut it short. My shoulder was feeling good enough this week to do dumbbell work, though, so I did 5 sets with the 100's (3, 10, 8, 8, 7 reps) to try and build some hypertrophy while taking some of the pressure off my triceps. All sets supersetted with chins with some ab wheel work at the end.

Goals for today:

200x3
225x3
255x3+

Lifted:

200x3
225x3
255x10
