Haven't been on here much, been working about 60 hours a week - but still train every morning at 6am!

I finally got 285x5 on flat bench, which I've never gotten more than 3 reps on.

I can almost do 2 reps at 315 now and my overall max is about 345.

My bench has always lagged and as I train more for aesthetics I kind of neglected it in favor of DB movements - (I can do 130s on incline, for instance :P) but it feels good to finally beat people on the lift, especially since i weigh like 220 now.

My ultimate goal is to get 315x5x5, so we'll see how long it takes to get there.


PS if any of you are in an industry where you're moving semi truckloads of goods, feel free to shoot me a message, I work in logistics and am always looking for new clients (haha had to make a sales pitch, right?)

300lb deadlift @ 140lb bodyweight. That was in fact all the weight in the little gym in my building, a client challenged me to do it :red:

Wow. I'm a skinny, slender-framed dude and you're an inspiration.

I'm with that. I think that 75kg (165lbs.) will be read into the little guy category just fine.

Trapbar farmer's walk around a figure 8 circuit, 245#. I started the year at 225 and my plan is to do the same circuit 2 or 3 times/wk and put the weight up 10# every month. This is the first time that I didn't have to set the weight down the first time at a new weight so it seems to be working. My goal is 300# by the end of the year. In 20 years I'm going to challenge Jason Nunn to a competition.

That hardly seems fair. Just think how old Jason will be in 20 years!

Barbell Back Squat 1x140kg (308lbs.)
The previous PR was 145kg from december, but now I've gotten the squat so much lower that it doesn't matter. Now I get to parallel, even a bit under.

I won personal trainer of the year in my entire organization (15 gyms 1400 staff).

(As a caveat, this is based on roughly 65% sales 35% client retention)

I got an iPad!

In my short speech I quoted Will Smith re: work ethic, and talked about how a good service sells itself. I'm hoping to springboard this into better recognition of and reward for education and development company-wide.
