    Happy with bench gains!

    Primal Fuel
    10/6/11 max bench 175 x 5.....1/28/12 max bench 225 x 7

    That is a 50lbs gain in that movement working bench in a workout 2 times per month.....a bunch of other workouts go into it as well but was just looking at my workout sheets and was happy about this one in particular.

    Damn dude! Nice work! 2 wheel bench for reps, that's huge!


    My goal is to be hit 225x5, I've been stuck at 200-ish for a while now...

    Nice bench! over bodyweight for 7 reps.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    Another way to look at it is that is almost a 30% increase...Well done!
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Don't forget to play!

    Thank you! I am very proud of getting that weight up! My goal though is to have the ability to bench 315 for at least 1 rep....will see how that goes! Bench not the only thing I am after though just something that I took notice to when I was looking at my workout sheets.
