We’re going to max out the bench press again so if you missed Monday you get another chance. If you WERE here let’s look for a 3RM max or grab a board and see if you can go over 100% with a shorter range-of-motion.

We’ll also hit the deadlift! Make sure your hands are ready and your posterior chain is set.
