Lifetime PR at 48 yrs old!
Tonight, first time ever, I hit 505lbs on the trap bar.
That might not be much for some people, but for me it was a lot.
With all of my back, hip and knee injuries, from decades as an infantry soldier and martial arts practitioner, I was alway limited in my lower body strength & power development.
A couple years before I retired from the Army, I could barely walk, after a parachute landing injury followed up with
insane Ranger 5 mile runs and other useless physical therapy.
Almost 10 years after I retired, my knees are fine, the rest of me is hanging in there and I just lifted over 500lbs.
I validated my program once again.
Hopefully, I will be able to walk tomorrow.
Hit the weights!
