315 To Nowhere

I saw Julian last week and he asked me how 315 went. I needed further explanation to which he reminded me that I was attempting a 315# bench press. Telling him that the day and time went without an attempt, spotters, etc. he started chastising me for not getting an attempt up, making excuses about a spotter, even saying he will come and spot if need be. While I didn't attempt a full 315, my decision to scrap my attempt came a few days earlier during "test run" when I positioned a safety bar near a weak point in the bench press, and couldn't move the bar an inch. I still have a long way to go, but I will get to that goal as quickly and safely as possible. I thank Julian for the motivation and support to be there. That is one of the reasons we are doing this club. To help motivate and push us to be the best we can.

See you all later...
