Well, I competed today and hit a 5lb pr raw. I benched 605 with a real close miss at 620. I weighed 323. When I hit 600 two years ago I was 328.5. So I hit a pr at a lighter bodyweight. Also, I hit this as a master. I am not certain if anyone else in their forties has hit a 600+raw in a sanctioned meet.
I posted about the meet in the powerlifting section of the forum. I'm too beat to add too much now. I just want to rest up and heal up. I'm getting back in the bench shirt and going down to the 275 class. It has been way too long since I have hit some good numbers in gear. Time to get back in the mix.
For training this week my plan is rehab work and conditioning only. Hopefully Friday I can get back on the bench.
Here's the vid from the meet:
