    Raw: 155

    Shirted: 820

    My shirt is pretty loose though so I'm not getting a whole lot out of it.

    I haven't done it but I would say that I could bench a little over 500 raw and my best shirted bench to date is 628.

    today i did 245X4 raw, missed the 5th rep, then 275X1 and almost got it but had to have a little help mid way :hsd:

    never had, or will have a shirt or any gear to help me lift more, seems pointless to me to have equipment that makes it easier, kind of defeats the porpuse I think.

    nope... sadly I am not. I just like to fuck around with people. My numbers aren't anything special. Best competition lifts are: 452 squat, 281 bench, 485 dl. Goals for my next meet are 500/320/500 at 220. Then I was thinking about trying to get down to 198.

    Yeah i was thinking about it and I dont see myself entering any sort of competition. Im not scrawny or anything but im not massive. I take weight training seriously but Im not hardcore I guess. Thanks anyways.
