Sure, I want to bring my bench up some. I think 400 is well within reach at 220 and might have even been there on Saturday without the twinge. But anyone who knows me knows I’ll take a squat or deadlift PR over a bench PR any day. I’ve pulled triple bodyweight as a 198 and am inching closer at 220. I think 660 will fall soon. When I squat 630 or so, a 660 pull will be a foregone conclusion.
Here’s something I wrote on a really bad day a few months ago but didn’t publish. I couldn’t imagine anyone would want to read it, yet it was the truth at the time I wrote it. I don’t want to go back to this place, but I might. We all might. Hopefully, none of us stays there for too long.
