Put very simply, today was a good day. I hit a heavy triple of 245 on close grip incline which was a 20lb PR from two weeks ago. This past week was kind of rough from a nutritional standpoint by which I mean I did not get to eat as well as I would like. This week however, everything seems to be back on track and my progress is noticeable at least to me. Days like today are what give a competitive lifter hope and faith in what they are doing and working toward. I have been blessed to have Tyler Stenger, a member of my house at Purdue and the Barbell Club, join Ethan Lenn and I on some of our training sessions. Tyler is a naturally strong and well taught lifter who is going to be dangerous once he starts competing. In other news, Purdue Barbell has made a team to participate in relay for life at Purdue on April 10th-11th.
