Thanks for another great workout Mike. Also, thanks to "Dirty" for helping out yesterday.. I hit another PR yesterday. I've gained 45 pounds so far on just three bench sessions with Mike. I will get that 500 soon Mike. To be honest with you. I was thinking too much about having 500 pounds under me. It kinda' scared me a little. Next time I'm just gonna' have to do my thing, and not think about what weight is on the bar.
I think you're getting closer on figuring out Jonathan's shirt as well. I still don't understand why he can't get at least 15 pounds out of his shirt.
Again, THANK YOU Mike....

Jay,

You have the skills to bust WAY past 500, it is all mental right now. I truly though you had it you were so so so close. But hey any day you walk away from the gym with a PR let alone a BIG PR it is a good day.

As for Johnathon it is all gonna be tech work we'll get him figured out soon. Hell 3 weeks ago he could not even touch in the shirt and now we are going the distance both ways :)

Let me know when you all will be back up!!!

Wolfy!!!

It's crazy how I'm talking about getting a 500 pound bench. Like I said before. A 450 pound bench was my goal at your upcoming meet. I just have to make sure I stay healthy and injury free.
We should be able to come up there this Saturday. My boy's soccer game doesn't start until next month. Practice starts next Tuesday. I'm gonna' have to move my DE day on Wednesdays. Hopefully we'll have a big crew next Saturday.

now i want a 500 lb bench to, me jealous.
if i dont start making progress soon i want my money back :)
anyways think i am figuring out what some of my problems are and my weak spots are at, i think i need to start driving with my heels and once i start pressing try pressing a grove up closer to the up rights, also need to work on those dumbbells elbows in presses, as everything else i can keep up with jay raw, except those.
, man were my triceps sore yesterday, starting to get some feeling back in them today.
thanks again for your coaching mike

I think once you get it figured out, you will be well over 500 in the shirt in no time. You have too much raw strength to not be. Shirt benching can be probably the most frustrating thing you will ever do in training. When you get it right though, it's a great feeling. Stay with it. :ninja:

My triceps are still fried... Jonathan. I don't think I did 475. I think it was 465. What was it Mike? I didn't even really look what you guys loaded that bar to. I'm talking about my last good lift.
Can you make it Saturday Jonathan?

i thought you hit 2 PR's. i thought the first one was 465, then you got 475, then moved up to 500 and got it half way up.
could be wrong though.

I think he went 465 then 500, cause the 465 was a joke so I called 500. Hell I donbt remember for sure!!!! Start a TRAINING LOG Jay!!!!

Once I hit that 500 I will start a Training Log. :):)
Serious question... Why is it that my eyes are blood shot again. Will this cause permanent damage. I'm not really concern about it. Just the wife. This never happened to me before. I guess it's the price you pay to bench 500 pounds!!!

It is just the pressure from the shirt causing blood vessels to pop. No permanant damage, you should of seen mine after I dumped the 903. They were brutal!!!!!
