    Sandbagged bench today. Hoping taking the foot off the gas will dissipate some fatigue and lead to a bigger single tomorrow. That tends to be the case when benching with such high frequency and volume.

    Excellent training day. Switched to flats for squats because of some mild knee pain and always being on my toes. Added weight again to bench and progress on that doesn't seem to be slowing. I'll be good for 160-165 by the time a meet comes around. Maybe more. And then the goal is 185.

    I don't think your coach likes you very much given those deadlift sets of 10. ��
