I was doing bench press today and for the first time I decided to rack 60 lbs on the bar (30 on each side). I started to lift the bar and felt the bar dip on the left and pull left.
WTF? I mean I didnt feel any left side weakness at 50 lbs, why would 60 be sooooo different? And usually I am stronger on the left. Maybe I just wasnt centered and core tightened and prepared. Focus... focus, stomach tight....
Went to lift again. Could barely get the left side off the rail and the right side was popping up easily and I started tipping again like I was going to roll off the bench.
I guess I am not ready for 60 lbs.
Got up to unrack and heh. I had accidentally left the 5 lb plate on the left so that side had 35 lbs instead of 30.
Fixed and did 3 reps, I think I had 4-5 in me but no spotter so cautious.
Lost successfully, followed by a whole lot of setbacks. And then some more setbacks. Starting over.
