Re: 1 Month of Starting Strength...Stronger than ever before.

Well Benjamin, I'll keep trying, but I don't know if I have the genetics to go massive like that.

I'm making solid gains in my squat. I hit 240 today and it was hard, but to be honest it was easier than hitting 235 on sunday. I don't know when I'll plateau.

My Press and Bench OTOH are VERY weak relatively speaking. I've failed on 100# twice in my press (after making linear gains from 65#). Today my bench press hit 135#, which I was pleased with, but the only thing keeping me from failing on the last reps of the final set was the knowledge that I had no spotter so I COULDN'T fail.

Thanks for the encouragement y'all.
