It was a Touch and go Bench Press Meet The bench was Really wobbly so thats why these Benches looked as if i was leaning toward the right cause i was Lol! I just went 475 for a opener then i did 500 but the first attempt didnt get cause the bench thru me off then did 500 again and got it then did 530 but the weight went to the right again Anyway it was a lot of fun i gotta encourage any of you guys that have never competed to give these competitions a try there great experience and you will not regret it as they will help you prepare for the Big time competitions.Special thanx to my good friend Nick Winters for inviting me to lift and for the Spots.

You look strong bro. I'd like to see you lose the elbow wraps. Work on staying tight when coming down and you wont be so all over the place like you were on the first one.

Yeah Travis it was a unsactioned meet i will lose the wraps pretty soon ive been feeling better lately and i havent been using bands so that has played a large roll in my recovery in a few weeks im hoping to be healed up to where i dont need the wraps anymore and i stayed pretty controlled i thought this time. like i was saying the bench was pretty bad youd have to be there to see what i was talking about thats why i had trouble half way up the way i did.
Thanx Strong Kid 963

actually the bench was a death trap from hell, it wobbled really bad and a frame weld broke during the meet before we even got a chance to warmup. I only went to 625 because the bench almost collapsed when I did that. His form is getting much better! The meet was not sanctioned at all, it was just for ****s and giggles, and to help get people interested in powerlifting.

P.s. Erik almost smoked 530 but he was rolling off the bench when it got to lockout because the bench was so ****ty.

I will try and get him there, he is going to be the next 600lb raw bencher. I have seen him hit some incredible numbers in the gym, and once his elbows stop hurting so much he is just going to get better!
