Bench On The Rise!

December proved to be an amazing meet for me! I hit my first 800+ lb. total, and went 9/9. My goal now is to beat my previous numbers by a 5-10% increase, and out-perform my last meet in every area. I am prepping for the XPC Finals in Columbus, OH. following the Minimalist/M2 Method by Brian Schwab. Brian has been my coach for just over a year now. The following logs are documenting my progress utilizing his training methods.

Another good day in the books.

In June, 150 was my paused competition PR. Today I hit it for a double! I didn't get to get any heavier benching in for a little bit, and my reps haven't all been paused so I swapped out the board work for some opener testing today.
