7 wks out - Benching to 455x1

Today's training session was :

425lbs x 2 off a 2bd
455lbs x 1 off a 1bd

My planned opener is 450. Attempts right now are looking like 450/480/500.

Overall, I like my speed and strength, but I am working hard to turn my heels out more, and keep my heels and knees out throughout the lift. If you watch closely, I have a tendency to lift my toes while I drive my heels into the ground. Driving my heels is the right thing to do, but I should be driving my whole foot down and forward thru the front of my shoe, rather than lifting my toes.

The weight feels light and fast. Better than last cycle. I'm looking forward to seeing how I do on the platform.
