    Was just going to do some upper body today, no real crazyness since im dieting pretty hardcore and usually dont have much energy.

    To my fucking surprise, this was todays bench...

    135 x 15
    185 x 15
    225 x 10
    275 x 7
    315 x 3
    365 x 1
    405 x 1

    Less than 1500 calories today, but cycled some pretty good carbs yesterday.
    Im on cloud nine right now. I've been shooting for 400+ for over 14 months.

    4 years @ 4-7 days a week. Didnt get serious about the food though until 2 years ago. First two years are practically a waste without proper nutrition.

    Raw.
    Had a spotter assist me with the lift off the bar, thats about it. and had wrist wraps. (400+ can break bones, so I wrap my wrists)
