    New PR on decline

    I was doing decline tonight for assistance after speed bench for my triceps..

    usually my progression will look like this..

    135x 6, 145 x6, 155 x6, 165x6 ... today i was using my new wider grip and proceeded to go.
    135 x 6, 155 x6, 175 x6, 185 x 6. ....

    im thoroughly amazed and "befuddled" at my accomplishment. Im thinking now that when i get in a a good shirt, i should hit 205 easily, because my triceps got strong all of a sudden

    saw results 1st week i did it, 2nd week and 3rd week.. heres how it went

    week 1- 175 x 4 on flat, PR
    week 2 195 x 1 tied PR with old grip
    week 3- 185 x 6 on decline blew away PR

    of course i didnt do it myself, i learned from the best, learned how to use leg drive and stuff.

    advice on going wider.. do it gradual.. i know you bench pretty narrow. so try this..

    week 1- where your pinky is now, move your ring finger to that
    week 2- with your new grip where your pinky is, move your ring finger to that.

    repeat until your benching so your miiddle finger or so is on the power rack.

    and thanks for the compliment.
