THAT'S another all-time personal record broken, with an underpowered right side... and it's literally the first time I've done any conventional bench in a full year.

Back when I benched at home and thought I was pretty strong, my 1RM was a measly 135 kilograms. That was mid 2011, let's say for simplicity's sake. I can't be bothered finding the exact date. Take my word for it. Not strong.

The last time I flat benched (besides the 1-armed variety I did a few times during rehab) was here, I'm pretty sure. This was mid-June 2012; I managed 3 reps of 110, not my best effort, but honestly not that far off it...

Oh, the log work was pretty good too. Still not ready to start repping one hundred kilos plus, but in another week or two it's on for sure.

So looking forward to deadlifts tomorrow night.
