hey guys! so, last week i hit a new bench pr of 210lbs. and before that i warmed up with 185 x 2 and it felt really light. like u could've got like 6 reps easy with it. today was my first week of bench on 5/3/1 cycle 2. and on my 5+ set of 185lbs i only got 4 reps. with like a half lb assist from my spotter on the last rep. BUT i benched with a deadlift bar, so could that had cost me 1-2 reps? i feel like it did cause after bench i went to decline bench & benched with a proper benchpress bar & got a new rep pr of 205 x 2? thanks already guys.
