Comments:

* I finally broke through a bench press plateau gaining 10 lbs on my competition bench press. At my current bodyweight of 192 lbs I am close to qualifying for the nationals in the Masters Classic Bench Press. I will have to add another 10 lbs to my bench press and wait until I turn 40 next year. It is kind of weird qualifying at this age but am proud of the fact that I have never used steroids.

Monday – Weightlifting

Comments:

* I have previously gone up to 150 lbs for 3 sets of 3 reps in the hang power snatch using straps with a body weight of 105-160 lbs. I am starting out light as this is the first time doing this exercise without straps and because of a past should injury which was the initial cause of me having to stop performing most overhead exercises for over half a year.
