Bench assistance with PR

Bodyweight - 265

Press Behind the neck -

155 x 5
185 x 5
225 x 4
275 x 3
315 x 5 PR

Db Bench Press - 100's x 35, 25

Hammer Curls - 4x20
Rear Delt Machine - 4x20

Notes - Needed this real bad.  My arms have been killing me for a few weeks but I figured out that I had basically some overuse in the brachialis.  Been doing high rep hammer curls every day for the past 4 days and the pain has subsided tremendously.  Lots better.  I still had SOME pain during this session but it was manageable.  Goes to show you how limiting pain can be in your training.  Staying healthy and feeling good are really huge factors in being able to lift well.  Another Captain Obvious type statement.

Anyway, counting this as a "PR" because the last time I did this for 5 I was about 20 pounds heavier.  So this feels excellent.
