Monday Morning Bench Press Meathead Workout

Had a great weekend 30 hour vacation to Monreal for the UFC event on Saturday.

Left Toronto at 1pm, got to Monreal by 7pm, chilled for a bit, then walked over to the fights, had a great time there (even though the fights were mediocre), and then wandered around the late night-nightlife that Monreal is famous for. Got back to Toronto at 6pm Sunday night...

...and then got up and hit the gym early today (because Bally the Dog was at the dog-sitters, so I didn't have to do a morning walk) for a Meathead Bench Press Workout.

Today's workout went down like this...

1A) Bench Press - felt good and strong because I had most of last week off from upper body stuff
1B) BB RDL

2A) DB Incline
2B) BB Row

3A) Eccentric Cable Rotator Cuff
3B) BB Curls

I hit a strong 275 on bench. That is good, but still off my best of 275 for 4 reps. Getting there and having fun doing it.

Craig, you should check this guy out...he seems like he's got a pretty cool method for functional fitness. Name's Erwan Le Corre; Men's Health has an article on his training:
