New Year = New Plan

So it's the time of year when people put together a list of their new years resolutions. I for one think new years resolutions aren't all that valuable, because I'd imagine that more than 95% of these resolutions fail within the first few months. The reason for this weighs heavily on not the resolution itself but the lack of a plan to fulfill the resolution. How many people actually sit down and write out a plan to accomplish the resolution. I'd bet it's the leftover 5% that actually succeeded in accomplishing what they set out to do. Failure to plan, is planning to fail. Though writing out a plan won't guarantee success, it will surely make it more likely. So in short, be sure to plan, else your likely to fall flat on your face.

New Years Resolution: Get a Poncho!(I hope he has the right plan)

Wishing everyone all the best and all the success in the new year,

New Bench PR

So I bonked an attempt at a 185lb bench, and again at 185, went to 175 and got it easily. Tried 180 and that didn't happen. I really felt close at both of the attempts at 185, so I don't think I'm too far off. Anyways, my new PR is up a 10lb increase over my last lift. We'll see where I end up in 2 more months.

New PR Number 1

Today was test day for my 1 Rep Max for the box squat. I put up 195x1, 225x1(my old PR) and then 245x1(+20). So from test day(9/27) until now I added 20lbs to my lift. Not too shabby. Tomorrow is 1RM testing for bench press, so I'm hoping to have a post for PR number 2. I'm looking to squash my previous effort of 165lbs.
