View Full Version : My 2nd bench performance at a USAPL meet

Hey guys,

This is my second USAPL meet (bench only), and I thought I would post the results. I'm pretty happy, as I got my goal, but I missed my PR at 340. All my lifts are unequipped.

For background, my 1st meet was back in June, I weighed in at 191 lbs. and put up 303lbs. This meet, I weighed in at 187 lbs, opened w/ 315, got my second at 330, and missed 340 (got it half way up, and then it stuck!).

I'm pretty happy w/ what I hit, considering I turned 40 in August, and I'm benching more then I did back in college (just to show you younger guys you can improve w/ age). I've got another meet at the end of March, and 340 WILL fall.

I'd just like to say that I like reading all the posts you guys put out here, and the advice and backing you give is great! I'd like to throw a shout out to Travis for his feedback, and also to BTO (I enjoy your posts, and keep up your great work, big man!).
