  • 367.5lbs: 3,3

Bench Press

  • 277.5lbs: 1,2


  • 407.5lbs: 1


  • B&R bar finally arrived to my doorstep this morning! Solid bar, and it fits inside my 51" wide power rack. Review coming up soon.
  • Haven't done bench press in a while, felt pretty weak.
  • Also haven't done squats over 320lbs in a while (because I was using a crappy bar I purchased from Kijiji that didn't fit properly in my power rack).

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
