Update #4

The most recent results of my one rep max progress:
  1. Trap Bar Dead-lift – one rep max up 10 lbs from last month; now at 280 lbs
  2. Floor Press – one rep max up 5 lbs from last month; now at 185 lbs
  3. Bulgarian Split Squat – one rep max at two 52.5 dumbbells plus 20 lb weighted vest.  I stayed put on this one.  I wanted to give myself one more month before attempting to increase.
  4. Dumbbell Shoulder Press – one rep max still at two 52.5 lb dumbbells.  This was a disappointment as I actually failed on the 52.5 lb dumbbells this month. I’ll try it again at my next testing day.

I am still on pace to hit all of my goals by next spring and am pleased with the progress I am making towards my strength gains.  I need to get more focused on my conditioning going forward.
