Just for kicks today I decided to see what my bench has gone up to. I usually dont worry about 1 rep max's, to me they are just a number and I would rather judge my progress by what I see in the mirror. Anyway, I did 1 warmup set of 10 at 135. 1 set of 8 at 245. After that I had my partner just add some more weight w/o me knowing how much. I put up 285 with out too much stress so I think I may be able to hit 290 or so. Really helped the motivation to see that I am making good progress. I have been working out regularly for about 1 month. Just for reference I weigh 195lbs. Ohh well just needed a chance to brag! Back to work!!!!
