Bend the Bar: 14 weeks to hit 1,400
 
I have the powerlifting bug. I tried my bench max today, and it came in at 320. For those of you keeping score at home, I tore my right shoulder 2 years ago at work, and my bench has sucked since.

It is completely healed now.

So, I decided to play around with a 14 week powerlifting cycle. I am still cutting, so my goal to be in top shape is not going anywhere.

I am going to test my max lifts this week, then start the cycle. Again, my bench max is 320. My previous top bench was around 425. My previous best of the squat was around 440-450. And my previous best deadlift was around 530.

So, I have hit a total of 1,300 is my 40's. Now, I want to hit 1,400.

08/27/2009: Testing Bench Max, Bench Hypertrophy

Supplements: Creatine, FOG's Transform Formestane

Notes: 270 and 305 felt incredibly light. I was shocked. I hadn't bench maxed in a long time. 320 felt rather easy, but I failed at 330, then 325. I did some hypertrophy sets after I maxed, and got in a good workout. I feel pumped, swole and sore.

Workout Time: 47 minutes

Workout Grade: A

Bench Press

Bar x 10
135 x 8
185 x 3
225 x 3
245 x 1
275 x 1
305 x 1
320 x 1
330 x miss
325 x miss
275 x 3
245 x 7
225 x 7
185 x 10

that is looking awesome MAB I knew you would hit 320, and I am happy to see that you are doing a powerlifting log. Anyway you can give us an overview of your weekly workouts?

I am very excited to read this and see your lifts skyrocket!

Thanks Jwood. I thought it was funny that we both landed at 320.

I am still planning my workout, but I will post it as soon as I decide.
