605-I would like this to be my 2nd attempt

As you can see, I somehow saved 585 from dumping. Im not sure if im going to open with 585 or 570ish. But I did feel good that day with all my attempts even though I didnt touch.

Nice strong pushes! Looks like you could open with the 605. 585 should surely not be a problem unless you have to fight too long to touch at the meet. Looked like you were still coming down though on the press call. Good luck big guy!

Nice Tank, I too think 605 would be a good opener.
Best of luck, looking strong!

Thanks, I shouldn't have a problem at all with touching once I get on a comp. Bench. The bench we use is garbage, it flattens us out and I don't think I ever touched anything on that bench. But we will see what happens!!!

Well, I'm gonna be opening with a PR!!! Same with my squat. But hopefully I will be able to raise it much higher then that.

Thanks bro, this is my last meet of the year for me so I have some goals for all three lifts. A 600lb bench is one!!!! I just need everything to come together for me so I can finish 2009 with some new PR's.

you need to take it down a little faster. not a whole lot though...makes touching alot easier

Both your squat and bench vids looked solid. You should have a great meet bro.

That is something I'm gonna work on in my next training cycle. I'm just always afraid of dumping it.
