    I posted in the local Missouri Talk under the weekend thread that I was going to be in Poplar Bluff on Saturday the 19th for the 2008 Ozark Bench Press & Dead Lift Championships trying to set a new state RAW bench press record. I'm not trying to brag or nothin' but :cool2:....................................................................................


    My lifting partner and I "cleaned" house! We each won our divisions respectfully!! :big_smile:

    I didn't set a new bench press record though:sad2:, however, I did set a new Missouri state dead lift record by pulling 725 pounds. :cool2::big_smile::roll_eyes:

    So needless to say Joe and I were pretty excited! I know this report isn't about fishing, sorry guys, but since lifting is my other passion in life next to catfishing, I thought I'd share it with my catfishing brothers!

    One day I hope to make a report about a record setting fish! Until then I keep hitting the gym to help keep my "girlish-figure" in shape!! :smile2::smile2::smile2:

    My personal best in the Bench is 560 pounds. I pushed that a couple weeks ago, yesterday I pushed 500 on my second attempt and then tried 540 but just missed that on my third. It's hard to be at 100% ALL the time when it comes to strength training. Somedays are better than others.
