    Finally got past my bench plateau. I've been stuck at 225 for a while now. All summer I was working really hard on getting my bench up but at the most I was able to get 225x2. Then tuesday I decided to go for bigger weight and to unrack it myself. I dunno what it was but I ended up doing 230, 235, then went for broke and got 245. I tried for 250 but got stuck a few inches off my chest. Felt really good to finally make some progress on the bench so yeah.. care..
