Bench Assistance

January 8, 2016
Before Supper - bit hungover today

Bench assistance. Last few weeks of the peak so I'm sticking with movements that are as close to the competition bench. Also continuing to use the block to let my shoulders rest. I also couldn't use my wrist wraps as my fresh tattoo goes right down to my hand and and I don't want to bugger it while it heals.

Left my back alone too. It's feeling better today but I don't need to push it. Snatch grip pulls are magic or healing it and making it feel better though. I attempted to do some side raises as well but I could feel it in my back on that first rep so I left them be.

Band face pulls between bench warm-ups.
