New PR for reps with 225. Weight is about 210.


Nothing great, but still a PR. Need to improve form, no leg drive and no arch.

Pfft that's crazy....I would love to rep 225 once..

Awesome bro. With a spotter there I bet you could have pushed out a couple more.

Nice job man! Only thing I have to say is keep going for more! Looks like you had at least 3 more in you. Even if you fail, you can just drop it on the pins. Again, nice job. Strong pressing.

Nice pressing! Definately had a few more in ya and a lot more when you get your form up to par.

Pfft that's crazy....I would love to rep 225 once..

no kidding.

Thanks guys. Haven't worked out in quite a while, so I was spent at 21. Really shocked I got that many, was hoping for 15. I'll be doing this again in a few weeks, so then I will just go till I drop the weight. Thanks again.

Impressive, man. I tried it a little while ago and got 14 and was pretty happy with that. Now I see I have a long way to go. Thanks for the motivation!

JEEBUS. 21? Damn that's impressive as hell.

11-14-2007, 08:16 PM

Even so, 21 is nuts. My arms turn to rubber after 10 or 12.

Thanks again everyone. Really need to get consistent. I repped it for 20 when I was 19, so it's been a long time to gain one rep. Looking for 30 by the end of the year.

Invain, it works now, don't know what happened.
