Sunday: Body Weight 188 lb

11 minutes jump rope
Test of Bench Press Max, 260 lb paused. Rested 1.5 minutes, then did 230 lb x 5 reps (touch n' go)

My Father-in-Law wants me to enter a Powerlifting competition because he is thrilled with my progress in the Deadlift. He is a powerlifter himself and recently competed at age 54. (correction, age 56)

I am estimating my Deadlift max to be about 430 right now. So I figured I would test my Flat Bench max in preparation for the competition. I have been doing DB Inclines, so I couldn't really estimate the Flat Barbell Bench without actually trying it. I did it with a paused rep because that is how I would have to do it in competition.

The competition is just bench and deadlift. I haven't decided whether or not I will do it yet. We will see how the upcoming weeks progress.
