    Well guys, this has been a LONG time coming!! Tonight, for the first time in my life, I benched 500 pounds RAW!!! I've been wanting to do this for years!! I didn't even plan on doing it tonight. I was going to do heavy 3 board press. I worked up to 405 for 3 as usual and decided to go 455, I smoked that. Then I was going to go ahead and start boards and my coach(Greg) said to go 500. I said nah, I don't want to risk injury. Right before it was my turn I said fuck it, throw 500 on the bar. It went up easy!! Middle finger on the ring also, not even full competition grip!! Soon I will harness all of my darkside powers!!!
