I discovered heart breaking news today. My one rep max on bench press has dipped to the low 300’s. The training I did for the RRR-race and tournament training for jiu-jitsu have rendered me an emasculated sap. I haven’t been this weak since my freshman year in college.
Jiu-jitsu is definitely my new passion, even more so than strength training. That being said, I have to have standards. I have to have balance. I will find a way to get my bench back around the 350 mark while maintaining my jiu jitsu training. The running will have to be put on the sideline for now.
I initially balked at the idea of actually posting this. I know whining about my bench being barely above 300 seems like an insidious way for me to boast a decent level of strength. Take it how you will, I have standards and I’m putting them out for the world to see (or, at least my 2 or 3 readers).
