I didn't hit any 1 rep maxes this week, but I did get a bench press 3RM at 320lbs and 5RM at 300lbs. No videos unfortunately.

With only a few more days left in 2012, I'm not sure if I can break any more PR's this year.

But that doesn't mean I'm not going to try!

We'll see what happens this upcoming week. Maybe I'll just throw on some fractional plates and get a 0.5lbs PR on my lifts haha.

Anyways, here's something I wrote this past week that you might have missed:
