Usually these challenges do not work into my regularly schedule training, but this rare time it did. Since I need as much work as I can to familiarize myself again with my bench groove, this was a perfect opportunity. And boy howdy did I have one helluva pump after this. Bench work alone accounted for over an hour of my time in the gym this morning.
