I know I’m getting stronger on bench ’cause I just did a 145 lbs. for a triple and 150 lbs. for a double today which is something I’ve never done before. I’m going to work really hard on bench press this summer in hopes of making it to 200 lb. bench in time before the push/pull powerlifting meet in August. I believe I can get there before then, we’ll see. Felt great about today’s bench press session, though.
De-load week is over so back to strength training. Tomorrow is leg day so we’ll see how I do on squats.
One thought on “Getting stronger on bench and feeling real good too… on the road to 200 lb. bench…”
Nice work, man! Even though the bench is often overhyped by most people, there really is no feeling like breaking through and pushing deuces. Congrats and keep it up!
