Happy to hit a new recent PR in 135 lbs. with the barbell bent press.
I feel really good about lowering down under the weight completely and not pressing it out. But this did initiate some spin on the barbell that I had to go with and count myself as lucky for recovering.
In this same workout, I came really close to bent pressing the 60kg kettlebell too. Close to the same weight, but with a different feel to it.
Actually, I hit this same weight years ago which you can see in this older post. But I haven’t bent pressed since then. Soon I’ll be surpassing this mark with a goal of a bodyweight bent press (my current weight is 180 lbs.).
More details on this lift can be found inside of the Arthur Saxon Power Pack.
