A while back I made a long term goal of meeting intermediate strength standards in 4 key power lifts. I was making good progress, but decided to plateau any strength building attempts while I was training for the Blue Ridge Half Marathon.
My Bench Press and Military Press have maintained at intermediate levels and are almost in the advanced range, but my Squats and Deadlifts are still clearly in the novice range. Today I am making my first attempt to set a new 1 rm PR for my Deadlift.
