Of all the skills that go into Powerlifting, upper body pressing is by far the most difficult and underdeveloped compound movement for me personally. This is a combination of a physical and mental barrier which started mid last year when I got shooting pains through both triceps. I have struggled to consistently be able to bench and have ended up pulling together a benchpress just prior to eat meat which is not how I like to do things. This training cycle is no exception, my triceps felt great the first two blocks then with one minor spotting mistake I made the pain came back instantly.
He triphasic training method has done amazing things for my benchpress movement unfortunately due to the mental barrier of my injury I had my first miss during this phase. On a high note I have consistently two weeks in a row bench pressed my last competition Max so even with injury I have not lost any strength in this lift which is a win.
385 – miss
