Decline DB Bench
45 x 12
65 x 10
110 x 3 x 12
Stretched and squeezed my pecs as hard as I could with each rep. Controlled the descent and doing them this way meant I had to sacrifice some pounds to get the most out of the movement.
135 x 5
225 x 5
255 x 5 x 5
Stopped each rep 1 inch above chest and didn’t fully lockout. This was to keep tension on my chest as much as possible.
