300 pounds. Yes, THREE HUNDRED pounds on the barbell floor press. I did it. Actually, my one rep max is 309 pounds, so I can go higher than I did last week and today. By going three hundred pounds, I overcame a mental block that had been holding me back. 

I used dumbbells when doing overhead press and hold because the gym does not have any free Olympic bars, but this can be advantageous in that both arms must do equal work to keep the weights above my head. I also did the horizontal cable row just to round out today's exercise. I had a very good workout this week.

I'll do the barbell floor press at 300lb x3x1 the next time I get to the gym. I'll keep you posted.


But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14
