    I now felt more confident and decided to see how many times i can lift 225, back in the day my best was 10 reps, but this is not back in the day so i wasnt expecting to get much at all, but i was excited to see how 225 feels again and what i can do with it

    At 35, you know your body better than you ever have and the humility to not EGO lift.

    Be safe and keep improving.

    Decided to change a few things up and go on a smith machine. Since a spotter is not needed and you dont have to worry about balancing the weight it would help a bit more with strength building and would give me a little more confidence doing reps with 225 since its a fairly new weight for my body.

    Rested another week and decided to give 225 another test, i felt a bit stronger with it and was able to push 1 extra rep out, will stick with a smith machine for another 2-3 weeks and keep trying to push out more reps with the 225.

    Back on the smith machine at LV-9 i was able to do more reps, Incline 4x8 and Bench 3x8 with the 225, compared to LV-8 when i was doing 5 reps on incline and bench. So was things are going well and the progress continues

    Its been a while since i did 135 for max reps, 2 months ago did about 30 reps, so i figured ill try it again with 135 and got 35 reps this time, i might be able to reach 40 reps, but at this point it comes down to muscle endurance. Regardless, i think about half a year ago i could barely get to 20 reps lol

    Back on the smith machine, maybe one more week ill work on it and then go back to free weights and see how it helped me out. My goal Is to reach 10 reps with 225 on bench free weight not on smith machine before 2017!! maybe even bench 315 before 315?? but thats a long shot, but ill try to push it, wish me luck
