Everyone had a great day. I hit a 30lb PR (565 to a 1-Board), Steve hit 605 which was a huge PR for him, and Jim smoked 800. Jim's best 1-Board before this was around 650, and he hit 705 to his chest in his first and only meet. This guy has been on a terror lately, he is on track for a huge PR in his next meet. We were light on spotters so I kept my hands on the bar the whole time for safety but didn't provide any help.

HANDS ON THE BAR..........CHEATERS!!!!!

JK nice work. Looks like a solid crew of guys. Shirted benching is def a team sport with lots of support needed by lots of guys to get better.

Ha! I knew someone would say it so I thought i'd play damage control up front. Thanks for watching, thats a huge compliment given your numbers. It does help having a great crew. With multiply equipment, training partners are crucial!

Thanks man! I'm finally getting a good feel for that Phenom. I had to rush to get it broken in to use in my last meet. I only had 3 sessions in it and still hit a 40lb PR then. Ill be excited to see what I can bench after a full training session in it now.

Wow, 40 is a huge meet PR! What shirt were you in before the Phenom?

I went from a double ply rage x to a triple ply phenom. I benched 500@198 at the pro-am, and that was after a ~12lb cut. I put on a few pounds bodyweight and 3 mos later competed at 220 with no weight cut and hit the 540. There were some variables in play there, but I will say that the phenom is the best shirt i've ever used
