This week we we looked for a mentor but were unsuccessful. My partner and i created a video on how to increase you're bench press. It consisted of three different exercises two warming up your upper back to have a solid base when you push off. Also to have you're back nice and lose with a key point like you're rear delt ready and mobile. During this week i benched a new personal record of 245 lbs.

Another week has went by and i'm still unable to find a mentor. I was considering a family member to be my mentor but he lives to far and i really want to be able to spend time and communicate in person with my mentor. I've done research on new and different workout for your back and have been trying them. Also been trying to push myself in my shoulder workouts because its my weakest point because of a shoulder injury that occurred before and still affects me.

This week I've been focusing and pushing my limits with leg workouts because its one of my strongest point. I reached a new Personal Record of 650 pounds on a leg press machine. As my squat PR has also increased to 295 pounds. The search for a mentor has still been difficult because i don't want to use any random person, i want someone who passionate and dedicated to this as i am.

Based on the feedback we received from our presentations i feel like my partner and i hit every part pretty good. Receiving fours and fives throughout our categories made us feel pretty confident about how we are progressing. Over spring break i hope to get more workouts with him due to the fact that he usually work out in the morning due to the fact that he works at night and that when i can go. I also want to upload two to three times a week. Yesterday i got to work out with my mentor and he gave me some great new ways to exercise and he pushed me to my limits and i was able to bench 275 a new personal record .
