notes: I tried to keep the sleeves and wrist wraps on the whole time because of the short rests, but the pressure on my hands was too much, so halfway through I had to leave them off. Axle presses make my wrists sore though, so they were sore by the 8th set.

Incline Press

95 x 3
135 x 3
*wraps, sleeves*
160 x 5
160 x 5

notes: I was supposed to do closegrip incline, but I was talking to people in the gym the whole time… and honestly I just forgot. So, I did regular incline, I was on autopilot.

I was then waiting for a bench to become free, and I got bored… so I did a few pulldowns while I waited.

Widegrip Pulldowns

Superset: Band Pushdowns & Cable Face Pulls

20 pushdowns / 30 x 25
20 pushdowns / 30 x 25
20 pushdowns / 30 x 25

notes: I used the extra heavy resistance band, and all I could do for pushdowns was 20 reps. I like the squeeze better with the lighter band, so I will go back to them.
