Back to 400 Raw Pin Press !

I've been doing heavy pin presses in the rack, at chest height, for some time now--and at a 'peak' I get 400 or 405 max in this lift --but--usually train up to 390- or -395 to not 'wear' the joints or pec tie ins...it seems in the last few heavy solo days I've been hovering under the 400 mark...so today...

I warmed up --225 X 5 for 3 sets 315 X3 for 2 sets--then I hit singles with 365 385 390 395 and 400--for 2 singles--the 400 went well and next pin press workout I'll do a 405 as a slow progression back to a peak....

THEN, I put the pins higher so that the bar traveled only 8 inches or so...and did 405 X2--455--460--465 for easy Lock outs...

than was todays workout...I had done a light day on Thursday that I purposely made easy so I could recover and raise my lifts a bit---Shirt day happens Saturday 21st...I'll try to get a safety bar 600 in then !!
