No. More. Poverty. Bench. (Week 1)

Worked up to a couple of heavy sets.



Then backed down to do some paused sets

225 5x5 with a pause

The plan here is to go up 5-10lbs a week.

For auxiliaries I did seated DB shouldear press/seated cable row/supinated grip lat pull downs

These exercises were performed in a super set for 4x10 while increasing the intensity on the first two exercises with each set. (On my last movement of a giant set I like to keep the weight the same and focus strictly on getting good stretch/squeeze.

Finally wrapped it it all up with some cable curls/face pulls

No frills. No powerlifting pop culture crap. Just consistently and relentlessly attacking my weakness.
