The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    congrats! it's a good feeling, isn't it?

    i've been blasting through squatting PRs for the past week or two and i've been loving it!

    7x205, 7x205, 6x205 BB bench

    Best before was 2x205, so 20 reps at 205 is a solid PR for me.

    Bench 225 X 4 reps

    not my personal best...but it is the best since in the five weeks i've been back after a two month period of no lifting at all!
    The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be a good friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.

    each number is a set. and the number represents how many reps he did in that set.
