    The Resurrection

    I had a log on here that was dropped off due to inactivity. I am a competetion Bench Presser who trains with a Powerlifting Team headed up by Jesse Kellum and under the wing of many other team members including Eric "Big Eze" Downey and many others, so need less to say I have a good support structure behind me. I will not call myself a Powerlifter till I train in all three lifts on a regular basis, and this log will contain the full spectrum of training.

    I got a little burnt out with everything for a little while there. I was training to keep my strength up but not 100% like I should. It was the two year anniversary of my daughters birth and death, the holidays, etc. Everyone's got excuses and side stories they deal with but I made it through, found my determination again, and overcame.

    Ok this was kind of all over the place because I was on a in between day where I missed legs in the week and I had Heavy chest the next day so I wanted to get a good session in with a little of everything that would not hurt me on bench the next day. I always figure something is better than nothing on an in between day in a week you may have missed a workout or two.

    I'm no where near the lifts that you're at, but I used to absolutely hate squatting too. I forced myself to at least do it in the smith machine when no one was around it until I got comfortable with it. It took a while but I finally got better. I still think my form sucks, but I'm getting all that checked out Tuesday, ha. Anyway, nice to see you around, looking impressive bro.

    Yes indeed. I was the strongest i'd ever been a few months back and kind of fell off the wagon just long enough to lose my PR 425lb. raw bench. So i'm clawing back to that surley but surely. Wanna be at 500 raw by this time next year, or at least close to it,lol. I don't think it's unrealistic with me being @290lb. BW I just can't fall off my track again!! Thanks!!!
