in terms of strength, i'm weaker than i was last year. but some of that is because i haven't been able to deadlift or do olympic lifts since the fall due to my back (which is better now). my squat is probably around 315lbs right now, deadlift is probably 400, bench is 250-260-ish, strict press near 190-195. i haven't lost much explosive strength, so i can still power snatch 185 and can probably clean and jerk 235-240. now that i'm able to deadlift again, i'm hoping to get my deadlift and squat up considerably.
in terms of metabolic conditioning, i am without a doubt in the best shape of my life. that civilian military combine confirmed it for me. i had the 15th best pit score out of about 300 competitors, and the 52nd best time on the obstacle course. overall i placed 24th among men, and would have been top-5 if there was an "over 30" category (which there wasn't). during the pit i did 56 kettlebell swings (unbroken) in 90 seconds and 51 box jumps in 90 seconds. that sort of event is right up my alley, though, because i am fairly strong and i'm a decent runner, despite being a pretty big guy (6'4", 215lbs).
