Squat, Bench Press & Pinch


Sept 5, 2011
Squat, Bench Press & Pinch

1) SSB Squat - Narrow
155 x 3
245 x 5
295 x 4, 3, 3, 4, 5, 4, 2 16:40

2) Bench Press - Pinkie on Rings
135 x 2
225 x 5
245 x 5, 5, 5, 4, 4 17:10

3) Loose Pinch
2x35's x 2/1, 2/1, 1/1, 1/1, -/- 7:30

Tested variations of the movements and terminated after the first bad/forced rep.

Squats tested best with a narrow stance, probably only a foot apart. This was the first time doing them that narrow in a very long time and they felt awesome and strong.

Bench tested best with the pinkies on the rings which is weird because I normally bench with my hands outside of the smooth by an inch or so.

I really wanted to do some pinching tonight and I tried tons of stuff. Lo and behold the loose plate pinch tested well.

No rowing movements tested well.
