First night of heavy band bench

Bench warm up: 145 X 3 sets of 10, 225 X 5, 285 X 2, 325 X 3 off 1 board. We warmed up like this because no one else was doing bands so we let them get done, then started our work sets.
Bands (one purple and a monster mini doubled up per side: bar and bands X 2 off 1 board,
Used a three board on everything from here on out (two board next week) 150 X 2, 200 X 2, put bash shirt on for the rest. 240 X 2, 330 X 2, 420 X 2, 470 X 1 and a miss on the second rep. Should have had two, but I was not set up well enough and tried to rush from my first to my second rep.....typical mistake when it gets heavy.
Close grip 4 board lock-out: 505 X 3, 505 X 4. Both of these sets sucked and felt heavy. I think all the top end work from the bands wore on me. I might not even do any 4 board next week. Don't know if it is necessary after all the band tension smashing us during the workout.

Looking forward to pulling against bands and chains on Wednesday.
