nice job man

nice job l2l...

I like that bench ... sweet.. that the uprights can be moved forward so you can do a lift off straight over the chest... and then they retreat back..

Made that look easy. nice work, and yea I also like that bench.

Thanks guys. Yea, thats one of the things that made me wanna join the gym im going to. They also have that same type of thing for dumbell press. Little dumbell racks that slide back and forth. No more wearing myself out just trying to get the dumbells into position. That stuff and an area dedicated to deadlifting and I'll never go back to the old "fitness center" again.

Good job, I have thrown some reps back after seeing Mike's vid also. Little inspiration for us all.

Nope. I'm not even sure I'm coordinated enough to do that.

Good stuff, you had more in ya. Maybe we should start a little contest in the forum? Awesome bench too, looks like a nice gym. Great job man, little pause in there between any of the reps, just nice and smooth. Made it look easy.

Wow, you make that look really easy!

You look like you may have had 2 or 3 more reps in you. Get a spotter next time and go for more! Awesome job man, 20 reps with 225 is an intermediate-term goal for me!

that bench is bad ass
