Bench Press

Basement Gym


Bench Press

Warm up with sets at 45, 95, 135#

Every 2 minutes for 12 minutes
1 rep @20X0 tempo

Based on my 185# 1RM and suggested loading, my targets were

75% - 130#, used 135#
80% - 148#, used 145#
85% - 157#, used 155#
90% - 166#, used 165#
93% - 172#, used 170#
95% - 175#, used 170#

Programming was from CFG and they followed up with Strict JT which I am not going to be doing.


I picked up my Raptor Strongman Yoke today and this thing is a tank.  The height is perfect for the basement and the crossbar is well out of my way for squats.  The safety bars are robust, but I did not need them today.  Overall I am very pleased with the purchase.  I will be using it primarily for powerlifting, but appreciate having the strongman capability.  In the Spring, I may bring it upstairs and use it for stone over bar or even yoke carries.

Assembly was painless.  It probably took longer to unwrap everything.
