OHP: 150, then 151.5

About 2 1/2 years ago I weighed 160 and could only bench 150, less than my body weight.

Today I posted an OHP larger than my original bench max. That is satisfying.

Squat: 325

Went for 335 and came pretty close but missed.

No pics of the lift, but here are those nice 3 plates on the big 55# Texas bar.

So you beat your DL by 51 pounds? That sounds like noobie gains! Man. Keep it up.

I don't know how much of the difference should be attributed to gear, but the other numbers sound like big increases to me, too!
