Day 309 - Body Beast Bulk: Chest "Bulk Phase" Progress

Below is the improvement I saw on Bulk: Chest throughout the "Bulk" phase of Body Beast. My chest has always been a body part that I have had trouble putting any bit of mass on. I feel as though I had great success in the "Build Phase" with Build: Chest/Tris, so I was excited to give this one a shot. It certainly does not disappoint blasting the chest!

For the first set of incline presses, my weight selection goes from 50lbs to 60lbs. I wish I had 55's so that it wasn't as big of a jump in the 8-rep set. Instead of increasing the 8-rep set, I simply increased the weight on the 15 and 12-rep sets instead. The force set is in a tough position, having incline flies and presses beforehand, and then a progressive set of incline presses immediately following, maybe next round of Body Beast I will build up enough courage to increase to 45lbs.
