"Stronger than you think you are"

I posted awhile ago that I'm only 15 pounds away from my goal of benching three plates this year. The other night I was doing reps with Jason and decided to go rather heavy on my last set. I wasn't sure how much weight was on there but I knew it wasn't light and I was hoping to do three reps. I did it without too much difficulty. Afterwards I counted up the weight and realized it was 290 pounds! Had I known that it was that much, I probably would've psyched myself out and not been able to pump out three reps. Two weeks ago I got a one-rep max at 305. So to do just 15 pounds less for 3 times as many reps was encouraging.

After I added up the weight and realized how much I'd done, Jason just smiled and said "you're stronger than you think you are."
