Coming back from taking over a month off of bench pressing while dealing with sternum/anterior rib issues I'm slowly introducing my chest to heavier loads. This was my second time taking the bar to my chest and was able to bench 115lbs close grip to my chest pain-free. I'm learning to trust my chest and trying not to anticipate pain. At this point where I'm mostly healed up, I'm mostly dealing with overcoming the fear of hurting myself again,

205 felt kinda heavy in my hands, but I know that's only because I haven't done any heavy upper body movements in a while. I know it will come back fairly quickly.
