155 x 5
235 x 3, 3

Added wrist wraps

Original Slingshot + Wraps

355 x 1.95 - Wasn't going for a double but decided to go for it at the last minute. I wasn't quite tight enough for it and just barely missed the lockout. Thank you spotter chains :D

Raw - Narrow Grip
205 x 11

Well that was enough. I'll hit my back, bi's and do some reverse bending tomorrow. Crap my triceps are killing me still from Tuesday's skullcrushers. I haven't really been doing them since I got my multi-grip bar but this is telling me I definitely need to go back. Doing them where the bottom position is behind/above my head really hits another head that doesn't get hit this hard from anything else. The last couple of sets with the slingshot finally started to break out the ouches.
