Well finally after chasing it for years I hit a 405 raw bench at 180lb bodyweight tonight. Touch and go.
todays bench session went like
135x7x7x7
225x10
315x8 for 2 sets
345x1
365x1
385x1
405x1 right side came up slow but i pushed with everything and got it.
then some cool downs
320x1 [5lbs was loaded heavier on the right side only](paused) for 2 sets

also last saturday with coach wolfey's help i hit 410 and a 425 pounds in my F6
yay i have a 20lb carry over in my shirt! hopefully I will hit 10lb PR's each time i come up like my training partner has been.

I plan on loosing 5lbs of fat while keeping my strength up so i can drop 10lbs water weight to make it at 165, but still want to keep pushing it, hopefully ill be at 430lbs by the end of the year.

You're a beast! That's a HUGE bench at your weight! That's a ton of volume for your warm up sets, too.

hey i am glad on any type of carry over now, before it was a big fat zero.

should be there saturday as long as Jay's boy doesnt have a soccer game so he cant come, but i think he can.

now that i got a number in my shirt I am expecting 10 lbs each time i come up, like Jay has been getting.


thanks everyone for the props!
