Week 2, Day 4 of Smolev Jr

Today was day 4 of week 2 of our Bench-specific Smolov Jr. Bench program.

I started the day out with some right shoulder soreness.. Not rotator cuff-type soreness, just some front Delt tenderness from benching 4 times a week for 2 weeks so far..

As I warmed up from the bar, to 25s, to 135.. I thought the weight felt kinda heavy, so I was unsure of the 10 upcoming sets of 265. So far in this cycle, I haven't needed any spotter assistance.. And didn't want to start now! Lol.

The first set of 265 went pretty good, but I was worried about the front Delt as it started acting up..

But good news, I learned something about my form and on the next few sets, I arched harder, making it more of a decline, and taking some of the pressure off the front Delt..

Sets 2 thru 10 went great! Video of set 9 below! Good speed, and a nice steady form!
