Test Day Recap

So testing day proved to me that my routines have worked thus far. All my lifts are up as well as other athletic performance markers, keeping in mind my program didn't have any plyometrics whatsoever.

So all in all I'm pretty happy with where I'm at. My bench is a little lower than I had hoped but hopefully I'll be able to break through my recent plateau with next month's programming. My trap bar dead lift form on my 355lb lift wasn't quite where it needs to be as well(understatement of the century). So those are my two major takeaways. I'll be focusing on strict form for my deadlifts, and ensuring that my bench press strength doesn't stagnate.

I've been training consistently for over 8 months now(has it been that long already!). I'd say the results are keeping me motivated. My back problems have all but gone away, I'm stronger, and generally feel better on a daily basis. I've gotten many comments about my improved posture lately too.
