520cqOrEEM1Efg Extremely horrible hand off and still got it!!

I was the only one in my weight division so I was first in that obviously, but I was second overall in the open division. Big achievement for me.:strong:

Yeah man, in terms of lift off's it was a nightmare to say the least, but I had to work through it, But in hind site that took alot out of me and may be the reason I missed my third lift.

Nice job man!

Thanks bro, I know in the grand scheme of the sport these lifts aren't much at all, but with this being my second meet after only training for 10 months with Jesse Kellum and Eric Downey, I think this is pretty significant progress for me.- Speedy

how much does a benching shirt increase your bench?

Depends on the individual.
It's like asking how much faster a car could go with a spoiler on it, without specifying the car or type of spoiler.

All depends like mercury wrote. In this meet I only got about 80 lbs. out of it. My training partner phil and I are equal in raw strength and he benched 680 in a two ply. I was wearing a single ply. You can get anywhere from 50-200lbs. or more from a shirt, I'm still a novice with shirted benching.

Spoiler wouldnt increase the speed of a car. It creates a downward force on the car that increases control and tire grip. And for most spoilers, travelling at average highway speeds its only like the equivalent of 20 lbs pushing down. Really they are just there to look pretty.

Was this a military sponsored event? Saw a guy in ACUs in the background.
