    I finally pressed the 100 lbs. dbs

    I GOT EM. Finally. Took me over a year to get there, but I finally got there. Had a spotter watch me, got the first rep, then the last 2 he had to tap my elbows. This guy was the anti-spotter of that terrible one I had last week. i feel like I've had a weight lifted off me. Just thought I'd mention it here

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I've never come close to maxing on BB bench. I always do it after my heaviest db work. Of course now that I've reached the highest db at my gym, in a few weeks I'm going to prioritize bb work
