    M52 - Just hit 315 BP for the first time!

    M52, 5'9", 195 lbs

    I was pretty sure I could do it since I put up 300x3 last week...but it doesn't count until you actually do it so:

    kizoa.com/Movie-Video-Slideshow-Maker/d282853023k2572355o1l1/315---3-plate-bp

    Arms a little shakey but it actually went up pretty smoothly. I think I might have been able to get two. But I was excited to hit this milestone and already celebrating in my head so decided not to go for a second rep. I'm pretty sure I could have done a little more.
    Felt so good that I treated it as part of my normal bench routine and then continued to finish out the rest which included 3 reps at 285, 5 at 270, 3 at 250, 5 at 235, 3 at 225 and finished with 10 at 205...then went on to do close grip inclines. Feeling good today.



    I've also got my deadlift up to 430...it's squats that are my bane. I have a short torso and long legs...good for deads, bad for squats. I must also have horrible insertions for my quads...I can actually bench more than I can squat and I've really been working on my squats. My original goal was the 1000 lb club. Hit that early this year. Then I switched to wanting a 315 bench, a 315 squat and a 430 dead....so 2 down, 1 to go.
