This was the final week of 2012 and I managed to squeeze out a few PR's after fueling up on a big Christmas dinner:
355 lb Bench Press
255 lb Overhead Press
230 lb x 3 Overhead Press
I wanted to get a 550 lb deadlift as well, but only managed to get it to my knees.
On a side note, I discovered the proper abbreviation for "pounds" is "lb" and not "lbs" as I have written for a long time 😐
This applies to single and plural usage of "pounds" (when it comes to mass, that is).
Anyways, came across some good articles this week. Check it out!
