Getting more into what I call “moderate weight.” Having benched 600 lbs in comp it’s very hard to be proud of the sets with 405, but bench is coming on strong, and I am more concerned with improving my reps, and building more muscle than weight on the bar.
In the next 6 weeks I will work my way back up over 500 lbs, then I will cycle my way back down. 500 lbs is all I need to focus on until the new year. My goal is to increase my reps with 500 before my push pull in March. I benched a PR last March at my bodyweight (304 lbs) so I will be looking to go beyond that.
Deadlift is not too exciting yet, but that’s my next training day.
