Extreme Dimensions Thread revival in 3, 2, 1....

1RM is 150lbs on bench

sporadic I finished out my 5K racing season with a 21:06 in 24 degree weather. I was really hoping for that sub-21 run. Last year same race was 23:16.
Just ran a new personal best 20:31 in training, but it was an awesome 62 degrees out today!
I also ran a new best 10K at 45:50 in training. I figure I'll start running 10K's next year in addition to the 5K's. Some friends want me to jump into half-marathons, but not really ready for that yet.
I'm 15lbs lighter than when I started this thread (170lbs)

Good luck everyone. Don't binge too much over the holidays! :)

jdubhack I went to Baghdad in 2008 at 142 lbs. I had been real sick up to a month pre-deployment. My normal weight was 153-ish.

After 8 months in Baghdad I returned home 186.7 lbs. There was nothing to do but work, eat, train, eat, train, eat, sleep - repeat.

At 5'7" these are my personal bests (2008):

Squat: 500 lbs - 1RM
Deadlift: 405 lbs - 1RM
Bench: 305 lbs - 1RM

I made the 1100 lb Club which was cool.

We always bench in the power rack for that reason.

Talking to my training partner now. We're going to do an 8 week 5/3/1 routine to get re-acclimated and then get back into the conjugate method. I will hit a 1000lb squat in competition.

sporadic I ran a 21:10 5K yesterday. It's just a 12 second improvement but felt awesome. I foresee 20's for 2013!
