Well I was at my friend's house and he has a weight set and a camera so I figured I would take a couple quick videos. Nothing special, but I figured you folks might be interested anyway. :hello:

135lb clean:

Very weird environment to be cleaning in, so my form was a bit off. X)

clean looked fine to me

make sure to drive through your heels on the bench press. keep them planted!

Very strong benching. The clean looked great too, although I am by no means qualified to give a critique on that.

Ah, well, his bench is pretty high... and I'm pretty short, so that's the best I could get. X) I usually bench with my toes on the ground, it works better for me than heels; I can get my feet pretty far back this way. :thumbup:

I know how that feels lol, my friend has a bench that's way too high for me also.

225x5 seemed easy, you can definately bench more than 250. Give it a try!

very nice pressing! You have a huge arch and made that look easy.

Interesting setup on the bench form, but damn smooth on those 5 reps, man. We have pretty close numbers it looks like. 260 is exactly what I'm shootin for as well :D
