Bench test and deadlift

Fri, 30 Nov 18

Bench: 135x10, 185x3, 205x2, 225, 245, 265. 275 F
Deadlift: 225x5, 315x5, 365x5, 385x1, 405xF

So my top three bench sets were with my strap - which does assist me a bit.  I was benching alone in a gym with no safeties, so I turned a couple of plyo boxes on their sides and used the strap just in case I found it too hard at the bottom.  (think slingshot but nowhere's as heavy).  I also didn't use any stimulants - so I'll split the difference and say 255 max.  That's 10 up from my calculated max three weeks ago.  I'll start another cycle next week.  I just decided to deadlift to see where I was.  I was doing a few shrugs and figured, meh, might as well do some deadlifts.
