I’m really not sure what to make of this.

It feels like I’m treading water. Some bench sessions are better, some are worse, but if you average them out, it’s treading water. Meanwhile squat/deadlift and back work seems to be progressing.

I still think it’s too soon to REALLY tell. I want to give it a couple more weeks at least and see what happens. I mean, the others may be progressing merely because they were “too light” when I started, by comparison to how bench work started. So again, it’s just too soon to tell.

But I also thought that it may be just how it is for the coming months, while on the RP diet. Thing is, I have to change perspective. I mean, if I’m losing weight (fat) but everything in the gym remains the same? Then at least I’m not losing any strength, which is important. I mean, I don’t really expect to gain (I’ll take it if I get it tho), but to maintain? That’s good. And so, if I do continue to just tread water then so be it; it means I’m at least keeping my strength. I just expect it’ll get really boring, so I’ll probably want to change things up merely to combat boredom.

That said tho, what I am thinking about is switching the bench to basebuilding model 2. So if I do change something in a couple weeks, it would likely be that.

Otherwise, today was just a day.
