Just a quick ? Do you prefer decline over flat or was it just the subject of your pics?

What's with the straps? Grip issues or to help with grip a little better? Nice lift btw, freakin awesome.

usually when I go heavy my hands start to sweat....which would suck if they slipped with 500 so hense the straps for grip.

Wow, great benching!

Btw, I'm more impressed with your stats, 280lbs offseason? That's just scary...

Lol, he's pretty much repping out your max deadlift A-Mac! :p

All I can say is DAYAMN. :omg:

That is awesome!

One question, why are the dead and the squat weak relative to the bench (I am not saying they are weak, just in comparison)?

Adam

Not even close......I still got him by 18lbs;)

Very impressive! You lift that off by yourself too?

Did I get that right 8 reps? I was beginning to doubt when there where no pics on this weekend. Any flexing pics? Great job

Adam
02-03-2005, 09:21 PM
yup, 8!
We had to wait till both of us were on msn to transfer the pics, that was the delay.

So technically he can bench more than, Adam can pull. lol
Well he can bench more than most can or ever will pull or squat. Sorry Adam.lol

Adam
02-03-2005, 09:39 PM
So technically he can bench more than, Adam can pull. lol

Well, techniquelly we don't know if he can do over 495;)
*goes and bans flexx so he can't reply and make me feel like a little schoolgirl*

He can't bench a bit more then my dead, he can bench a ****load more!
The most I've done for reps is 405x3.
*runs and hides*

Short arms relative to a longer torso/legs? Hard to tell from the pic, but that's generally the case. Most bench specialists can't deadlift for their lives, err, relatively speaking.

My chest has always been my strong point but I'm definatly working on bringing my deads and squats up to par

Well, in any event you have a tremendously strong bench press!

God, I hate my life.

:cry: i can end it. by putting you under that 495 decline bench press and letting you try and do at least one rep. :whip:

Adam
02-06-2005, 06:47 AM
haha,
That would end most peoples lives!

MM

Body, how in the hell would that solve the problem? It's not like I'd be able to get it off the rack.

I'd just lay there and look sort of pathetic...

Thanx bro, I took those pic 2 weeks ago, I bulk up to 280lbs I was about 260 in those pics and I'm currently closing in on 270

Granted it's decline, but 8 reps of 495 would lead me to believe your max on flat bench would be higher than the 540 you listed....

Also, that's pretty nuts doing 90% of your max for that many reps without a spotter, that would get in my head and I'd surely get stuck under the bar.

Very impressive, nice work man. I'd be more than happy to squat or pull that much.
