Pretty cool testimonial from a guy that thought he'd never be strong
Hey Paul, so I just finished up another Strong-15 cycle and just deadlifted a PR of 565 tonight. I think that's pretty amazing considering over the last 4 months I've done exactly 2 reps above 500 lbs. in training. A year ago I had pretty much accepted the fact that I'd never deadlift 585 or above. Now I feel like it's not a matter of if but when.
I also benched 350 for the first time ever about 3 weeks ago. I have sucked horribly at benching my whole life. It literally took me 5 years to bench 225. So finally being able to hit an easy 350 felt fucking awesome.
Thanks for all that you do. I can't wait to pick up your base-building manual either. Good luck with your meet. -- Bill Schonberger
