what's all that stuff hanging from your back?
either way, that 650 came up pretty quick...that's some strength

Those are the straps of my squat suit. They would normally be worn up over the shoulders for more support.

If the spotters hadn't of stayed close I would have dumped 365 on my face two sets earlier(missed the third rep). When shirt benching in training, we always stay pretty damn close because anything can happen. It's a lot different when raw benching.

Damn impressive Chris. You must be close to setting records for your weight class.

Yeah I noticed on the 405lbs press there was this large fleshy looking thing under your back, it looked like you'd unergone some sort of monstrous mutation that made you much stronger. Do you subject yourself to high doses of astral raditaion before you go for a pr?

Awesome work - I remember the first time I pressed 8 big plates - It scared the crap outta me, but when it was done I didn't come down for almost an hour. You got more in that squat, you went way deep - deeper than you had too for comps.
