True. I'm not trying to lie, just be as thorough as possible in my report to Tex.
My instructions were this, and I'm quoting
"170x2 (w/ a spotter assist, preferably on the 2nd rep only, and the key is to keep the bar moving at a good pace, you should be doing most of the work, but at no point should the bar stop, come back down, or anything like that. a good pace for as assisted lift on bench press is a 3 second count from the time you perform the positive half of the repetition)"
I think that's pretty much what we did. Regardless, I had never done 1 rep of 170 before tonight, so it's still a new high.
