    bench..

    I never bench with teh barbell anymore, strictly db's, but I thought I'd give it a shot today.

    Anyway, today was back/triceps day but I thought I'd give a 1RM bench attempt and went at it. Benched the bar for about 15 reps, concentrated on my form, focused on the line I wanted to take, my setup, etc.. Loaded up 135 .. did it x3 concentrated reps.. then I went for 185 :noes: To my surprise, went up without any problems whatsoever.. so i decided to go 195.. same as 185, didn't even feel much heavier, except for at the top of the lift..

    I think I coulda pushed 205 or 210, hell maybe 215.. I felt strong as fuck, but I decided to stop playing around and go pound my back.. :wavey: :wiggle:

    cliffs: testosterone is one helluva drug

    edit: i weighed in @ 158 when I got to the gym. 6' tall.

    I guess 195 isn't that big a deal considering I repped out 155x10 last week and I press 65's on db's.. :dunno:

    yeah hes about to set the all time total record which is another 40lbs and all time bench which is 12lbs or so. only reason he missed the all time at the wpo semis is because he red lighted his squat opener

    I hit 225 @ 150lbs. I don't see why you couldn't do the same.
