Bench

Opener: 125 was ok. just ok.

3rd attempt: 141 pounds. Miss. My setup not great, I totally relaxed at the bottom so it might as well have been a pin press – bar didn’t go anywhere.

141 would have been a PR, so no risk taking or PR in bench today.

Deadlift

Opener: 300 – Good.

2nd attempt: 325 good lift. I got my first PR! Here’s how that went:

3rd attempt: 341 A friend insisted on 340 next and I thought he was nuts. But , I already got 325 so I beat last meet’s total and got more than what I had set out for.
