Hit this lift for the strongest of the weak ones contest. Its a 20 lb PR and surpassed my goal for the year by 5 lbs. I am really pumped about it!

Impressive man.

Is your ass on the bench the entire lift? Hard to tell from the angle.

It's JUST touching the whole time. Theres like no weight on it or anything, it just kinda hovers there. I didn't get a chance to loosen up my hips before this lift since the gym was closing. Normally i can get my hips back a bit more and i wont move AT ALL. There was a bit of shaking on this one because of it.

Anyway, you can see the ass better here.

This is why I don't post my max benches. My butt never stays on the bench when I lift for PR's.

We will see. I have some things to work on before worrying about hitting another raw touch and go max.



Nice!

Thanks!

Great Job... maybe if I am really lucky and work really hard I will be able to hit 300+ this time next year. I'm jealous.

Thanks man! It took me about 15 months to go from about a 205 bench to a 315. Then it took like a year to go from a 315 to 370.

Awesome man, apart from the butt your technique looks very good (to my novice eyes anyway), very inspirational...

Impressive. but like all said the butt needs to stay planted and back against the bench.
I am sure if you were doing 225lbs, then you would be doing it like it's a walk in the park.

Good job

See, thats why squating gives you a better bench. It gets your back higher off the bench from having a huge ass lol.

It looked like it was pushing the limits of the rules, but isnt that a good thing? It looked like it would pass to me.
