    Bodywt 237 lbs. I was 240 yesterday so I need to drop weight pretty quick if I want to compete at 220 on Oct 26th.
    I stubbed my toe pretty good a few days ago. Although that pain subsided within a day, I was on vacation at the time so had to limp most of the day while we were seeing various attractions. As a result, my calf is tender from compensating for the limp. I'm hoping I can squat tomorrow, and so am alternating bench day with my normal squat day.
    Bench w/ wraps @ 365 lbs-2. Rpe 9.25
    Bench @ 340 lbs-5. PR. Rpe 10. Last rep wasn't pretty but I got it. First bench pr in about 2 1/2 years.
    Bench @ 315 lbs-6; @ 295 lbs-8.

    Cable pressdown @ 130 lbs-15,15,15

    Bodywt 233 lbs. Still a bunch of weight to drop to get to 220 by 10/25/19. If I can get it to 226 or so by the 24th I'll be in good shape to just do a further water cut.

    I'm still not fully recovered from bench day on 10/15 but wanted to get another full bench workout yet this week.
    Bench w/ wraps @ 370 lbs-1. Rpe 9.25. Not great but I could tell I'm not fully recovered during warmups.
    Bench @ 265 lbs-3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3 Set every 1 1/2 minutes.
