Yesterday morning we decided to do floor presses with the fat bar, which went very well and then last night we decided to take a weight at my gym.

This was a 5lb PR for me


I was mentioning this to Vincent, how much longer it takes to add lbs to your raw bench. Last December I benched 550 in a meet so in around 10 months I've added 15lbs lol. I haven't been dissapointed at all, I just have to be smart. Going for 5lb PRs each time.

I think also staying on top of developing or changing weak points throughout the training cycle is also key.

Slow and steady homie. You are strong as an ox. Just takes time. It's crazy to think you trained that morning and then hit a raw pr in the evening. Great work.
