View Full Version : The Big 2 Plate Bench

So, my training partner and I have been training lately with a new guy, Alex. Hes 18, weighs 181, and is trying to be a true goon, lol. ANyway, so he actually hit 275lb bench last week, one clean rep.. this week we were doing high reps, and he decided to get in on it at 225, he actually hit 6 at 225, which i thought was pretty good for his weight. I weigh 264, and I only got 3 sets of 15 at 225lbs, I can imagine when hes my size, he'll be moving mad weight!

Anyway, heres a tribute to him, post some crap, and I'll give him the link to look over for some inspiration


ps. thats me spotting him..

Sounds like he's doing alright for his size! Tell him to keep cranking out the heavy weights!

Yeah that's definitely good work at his weight. So is he planning on bulking up a bunch or maintaining weight or what?

Pretty good man.

Hes planning to bulk up as much as he can. We've been working on his diet and things to get him eating enough calories, etc. so hes actually gained about 6lbs of good quality in the last month. Coming along!

Yeah I'm sure he'll be able to push a lot of weight once he starts getting even bigger. What's cool is once he's big you can say that he was your 'apprentice'. BTW you're looking pretty beastly yourself in there. Keep up the good work.
