It may not seem like much to some, but this is a huge thing for me. Looking back thru my logs that I can find, I have never been able to put up 65# (bench) for more than 5 times. In fact, it was my 5RM taken some time ago. And then my shoulders decided they didn’t love me anymore and things went steadily down hill from there.

But today…. Today I put that fucker up 12 times, both sets. Never before have I actually had to contemplate having to bench 70, and yet that is exactly what I shall be doing Monday. And I could not be happier about it.

I am so fucking stoked at the moment, that it doesn’t even depress me that I can’t even do 12 reps on shoulder press with 15# dumbells.
