Comment: (e1RM in:) 278 (e1RM out:) 289. Bench coming back pretty well. These felt great. Just a few pounds shy of an all time PR. I think I might be able to get a PR next testing day after all on bench.

Comment: (e1RM in:) 500 (e1RM out:) 469. This went horribly. Warm ups felt really good, but just didn't have that third rep. Last week I for sure I had 445 for another rep. If you saw my first rep you would have thought I had 10 reps. Against my better judgment I tried to repeat the top set, but it didn't happen. Vid below.
