Challenge Accepted! (And Achieved)

Cliched but totally true!

I wrote a couple of weeks ago about hitting 295lbs with a set of 10 bench presses.  Well, today I accomplished my first big goal for the year.  That’s right, 305lbs baby!  And it felt awesome.  I was really struggling on the 10th rep but the first 9 were relatively easy.  I’m tempted to go a bit higher but we’ll

Please note that I’m 38, I’m not a professional body builder and I spend less than 5 hours a week at the gym, and some of those are spent on cardio.   I have no secret training technique, no super duper bench press method, I don’t use high priced muscle supplements and I don’t use a personal trainer.  Also, I only started going to the gym when I hit 30 (and 30 hit back!).  I say this because I keep hearing people tell me they’re too busy or too old or too tired or too lazy.

Trust me folks, it’s not that hard and you don’t end up looking like a body builder who uses too many steroids either.  What you do end up with is a healthy body that will keep you mobile and independent well into old age (plus some impressed looks from your fellow gym goers).

Now on to marathon training!
