    thanks, terry. the speed and explosiveness is coming along.

    95x3
    135x3
    185x1

    Shirt no board
    320x2
    360x2
    405x2
    435x2
    450x2 PR

    2 board overload
    490x1
    515x1 PR



    got out of work late so i had to start an hour later. this was the last bench day before the meet on August 4. 455 is my best in a meet and i felt like i left a lot in the tank on the 450 double. 515 was the most i've ever had in my hands and felt heavy, but moved faster than the 490. squat and bench are there, but my deadlift training has been screwed up the past couple of weeks. between scheduling, and being sore from squatting, it's been a mess. i'm going to pull heavy after taking a lightish squat tomorrow, and we'll see where its at.
