An alright bench to get back at it. I knew I wasn't going to go into it with all my strength after missing two weeks out, but overall I'm happy.
Back to eating clean and plenty of nutrient dense foods to make up for the crap I ate at home.

Went for 295 as a single today and failed on both about half way up. Lost my confidence and the flow in my workout. Definitely going to be working at my squats and my other lifts as much as I can. I really want to be as strong as I can be, and those two weeks off really hurt my progress.

Had to cut the workout short since I had class today.

Nice, pulling heavy with hook grip! Have you been working on it for a while or did you just try it out this time? I've been trying to work the hook grip into my lifting a bit more, hopefully I'll be able to hit my final heavy deadlift sets with it soon.

Very solid squats there mate, a lot of work before your final set so if that was a little less it might not have felt so much of a struggle.
Keep up the great work, I'll try to check in here more regularly. What is the main goal(s) that you're working towards? Let me know if I can help with anything - I just gave VeganRossco one of the 5/3/1 ebooks. Just yell out haha.
Have a top weekend matey MF.
