This workout focused on some heavy bench pressing where Kristen set a personal best of 100 pounds for 6 reps. She was going to just do 90 lbs but she felt good during her warm ups. I always say to self assess and she did! She took advantage of feeling strong and it paid off! She ends up doing 90 pounds for her next two sets for 6 reps each! She really did great.
She finished with heavy hand offs to get her brain use to heavy weights in the press position. Once in a meet her next actual personal best will feel like nothing as she has conditioned her mind to be use to those training loads. Many people are often broken mentally feeling that initial weight of the bar.
Kristen finished doing giant sets of full body training using basic movements that she likes but that are also consistent with her goals.
