Jersey Iron's-" bench only Guy"
My name is Tim Gale. I have been competing for almost 6 years now. I train with JI (jersey Iron Crew). I have competed full equipped and bench only in the past. But last year and a half now I have been dealing with some injuries that won't go away. (tore my pec-shoulder tie in on left side) and haven't been able to pull or squat in 6 months due to back/hip issues.
I have done one meet in all this time(single ply bench)@275 with 570 bench back in Nov 2013. Since I have started training more bodybuilder style and tried leaning out. down from 272 to 252 now.
I am now training for Rps meet March 8th in Bristol @242. Hoping for big things and maybe get back up to numbers I'm missing.
So great to see the T Gale comeback!
Training isn't always exciting but when you get to see someone coming back from a long haul of just sticking with it when it wasn't fun and more than often very frustrating, it is awesome! So glad to see you making progress again. Tim is back!
