I've been keeping a log on Bender's Battlefield for a few years. The sites been down for a few days, so I figured what better time than now to start a log here!? Some background info: Age: 39 H

Here is the 345 bench from yesterday. Not a perfect rep, but I'll take it! Bodyweight was around 195lbs.

Squats felt OK today.  I was just too slow with 415, and couldn't get moving out of the hole.  Came back with light knee wraps and blasted 405.

The 126 close was close ... the handles just touched, I think.  I need to include more block sets in my regular rotation, as it ends up feeling awkward, if I don't regularly train it.

I could have gotten a third rep with 315 on bench, but didn't have a spotter and didn't want to chance it, as it would have been a grinder.  DU has been feeling pretty good lately.  I'm going to be making another Grade 8 attempt in single IMPs soon, maybe one cut down a little.

Bench felt awesome today!  I probably could have gotten another rep with 225, but was by myself and my arms were starting to turn to glue, so I stopped at 20.

The DU Grade 5 was really explosive, so I attempted another Grade 8 in IMPs, which was tough, but taken to about 50 degrees on a long first hit.

Deadlifts felt solid today ... quick and strong.  The briefs I've been wearing are a few years old, and pretty worn out.  Pretty happy to still be hovering around 500 sumo with them.  I normally don't do speed squats, but wanted to try after deads today.  Just too much stress on my knees; I might try them a few more times before giving them up for good, if they continue to cause pain.
