    Congrats. I think for many of us when beginning, 2 plates was a milestone. :cool: Not reffering to the mutants of course.

    that always feels good.

    feels better when you pump it out 15+ times though like me. Boss.

    :h5: Nice work.

    I remember the first time I got 225x1 I was so excited it ruined the rest of my workout. :rofl:

    Out of everything I've acomplished so far I think that was the best.

    Did 225x6 today, B2C. Felt great. Now I hurt :) Dropsets ftw... started at 225 and went down 20lbs at a time till I couldn't even lift the bar anymore.

    Congratulations. I'm nowhere close to 225 bar to chest. I can do it to parallel but what's the point in that. Minus whale follow those up with 2" ROM squats and call it a total body work out.

    You have to say that round these parts, or people will start asking what your wingspan is :)

    EDIT: Not to mention I didn't used to go past parallel... the first time I could do 225 all the way down I was very excited.

    Benching in the PR territory feels like a leap of faith sometimes and sometimes it's just that because it gets easier afterward.
