Training Diary 8

(Been a jam-packed couple of weeks, with lots of travel and fun stuff that I’ve been doing instead of posting. And it’s not over, so posts will be a little scattershot through the end of the summer.)

Had a great bench test the other week. I’m slowly getting climbing to my goal of 315. I was able to get 300 for a good rep, but failed 315 twice. Jumping that much was a bit of hubris, I admit, and I am very happy with my 5-pound lifetime PR. It’s also the most I’ve benched in over 2 years, so I’m very-very happy. I didn’t have the foresight to record it, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.

I did record these deadlifts, though. I’m okay with them. The last one is sloppy, but that’s just fine. I need to keep at it. I’m less than 4 weeks out from a contest and my training has been tough to fit in with all of the life.

405, 425, and a red-light 450. Good to be deadlifting again.
