Did some benching today. It felt really funny because I put a chair to sit my leg on since I cant bend it. So basically I was on the bench with a leg even with my body, balance was hard so I didn't go to heavy.
295x1-barely, almost lost my balance and fell off the bench, but I forced my breath out and kept my core tight enough so I could get it back up, it was a very very ugly rep.
Felt great to actually do something active. I think I am going to be able to increase my benching strength because I'll be used to having to focus so much on balance that by the end of it my core will be very sturdy so if I add in leg drive I can up the numbers. Going to do arm work and shoulder as well, and I'll see what I can do for my back because I don't need any more of an imbalance than I have. Was thinking of seated rows and pull ups, stuff that you dont need legs for.
I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.
