Well I used to always miss weights right off the chest but I knew I had the ability to get it once I passed the 1.5 board area. I started doing a progression I found online using the cambered bar and it helped significantly. Now I miss benches about 1/3 to 1/2 of the way up.

I have a camber bar but afraid to use it since my shoulder surgery. I turn it the other way instead of using boards when I train alone at home. What kind of program did you use?

Dead lift: 150x5, 185x5, 220x5, 280x5, 315x3, 350x5. Super set: reverse hyper and pull downs 10x3sets.

Bench: Reversed the camber bar to simulate doing boards. Bar plus 60lbs chain x10, added 25lbs each side hanging from bands x10x2sets. The chains and hanging weight made it harder to control the bar. I'll try anything to move the bench.
I think that's the whole point to using chains Joe. Helps to strengthen your stabilizer muscles and also your form has to be a lot stricter. I prefer using chains on the squat rather than the bench tho lol. Stay away from the camber bar. Don't listen to Dominic cause hes only doing them to build up his chest so he can have a pec bouncing competition with Glen.

Says the guy who always flexes in the mirror...

He's right though Joe, if your shoulders aren't in their prime anymore it might be counter productive to use the cambered bar for benching.

Maybe I should squat on another day and see if it gets better? Looks like I'm the only one posting lately? You guys can't be learning anything reading my log.

3 more workouts before the next meet. I will squat and dead in the suit to see where I'm at. Haven't decided yet if I will compete. Would like to get 400+ again in the squat. The dead feels good and I think I could add to the last meet.

Wednesday 2/29/12

Dead lift: Bar x5, 155x5, 195x5, 235x5, 295x5, add belt 330x3, add knee wraps 370x2, lose the knee wraps 370x3.
Don't know why I came up with the lame brain idea to put knee wraps on. With the wraps the set up
felt funny and after only a couple of minutes rest got 3 fairly easy reps with them off. 4 would of been a
PR with this weight and I screwed it up trying the wraps. Last dead workout before the meet.
