There those days where you wonder “why now?” After months of harsh persistent training with no real progress there is all of a sudden this streak of PRs in Bench press that seemed to suddenly happen. Last spring I did a 170 kg in a competition. Since then no PRs - until the germans in April of this year with a 172,5. Now in training for the European my bench explodes to 182,5 and even touch and go’s with 185kg. I have lived this many times now over the last 37 years of lifting. Progreas is not linear. You get out what you put in.- but progress is a surprisingly erratic process. Only mental hardress, diligence and faith are the pillars to success.
