Fat but stronger

l251695231[1]So this weekend there was a lot of undisciplined eating going on for me and by the time this morning came around I felt fat.  This feeling was reenforced when I saw 186 flash up on the scale this morning, a number that is high for the morning where your weight is typically the least.

Today the extra bodyweight seemed to translate into being slightly better on the bench, knocking down 240lbs as a 1RM and then getting 225 for three reps on the way down, the first time that happened.  I followed with strong sets at 205 and 185 as well. Even though I do like seeing my numbers on the bench go up, if it correlates with the numbers on the scale going up as well it isn’t a trade off I am willing to make for very long.
