Hey guys on a previous thtread you all were talking about arching well here is mine. I try and shorten the distance as much as possible if I could just hit my high spot it would all be over and I'd be benching a half a ton!!!!

That is one huge arch for a big guy. Probably as big or bigger than mine, and most people say mine is huge.

Damn Wolfy. That's pretty sick. I've seen 148s that can't get that much arch.

I'm envious. Did you do any flexibility training for it? I've heard of lying on pipes and slowly increasing the diamater.

Risk10K,

I juststarted doing it about 10 yrs ago and slowly got it higher and higher. No pipes no tricks just tweaking it more every week, Ohh and lots of kinky sex positions that helps also :)

crazy dude!! how much is that bench? how big are you man?

It was spose to be 860, but after looking at the bar we are pretty sure it is 880. If the last plate is 2 ~ 45 pound plates and not a 100 pounder it is 860, but if it is a 100 pounder which to me it looks like, it is 880.

Bar + 800 pounds + 2 dimes + 2 scooby snacks(2 and a 1/2's) + collars = 880

I missed the weight got it about that far and my collar pooped.

I weighed about 395 in that pic, I'm around 395 to 400 now.

Wolfy!!!!!

If kinky sex helps the bench, why does my bench suck so much? Maybe it's all the rough sex...

No ****, I think I need to stop hanging of the ceiling upside with my feet attached to chain when I get it on. Might have something to do with it.




Thanks for the reply man!

I agree man, I wonder the same thing.
Just keep in mind, no sex before your workout. Keep it until after, then giiiiii'ver!

I'm considered pro, but I am just like everyone else on this page. I love to lift!!!!! I work a forty hour a week factory job. I just got tired of getting my ass beat as a fat kid, so I started lifting and it took off from there. I hooked up with the greatest strength coach in the business, Louie "Westside Barbell" Simmons and he has taken me to the top.

My best shirted contest bench is 830 and that puts me at like the 9th or 10th biggest shirted bench ever. I will hopefully be improving on that in 5 weeks
at Kenny Patterson's World Gym APF Championships in Columbus Ohio. I did 825 last year there to win that meet, but this year the contest already three 800 plus benchers in it, and one who is biting at it really closely. So I better bring my A Game for this one. But to me win or lose it is about fun, lift some BIG weight, have a good time , talk some smack and at the end of the day everyone goes home having had a hell of a time.

Wolfy!!!!

great attitude man, thats serious benching, i was also always getting picked on thats why i started to lift lol, out of curiousity on your heavy bench day how many sets do you do and any direct tricep work?

bigbadwolfe
06-09-2006, 07:08 PM
On my Max Effort day I'll take about 4 warmups working to about 405 making 90 jumps.
Will do empty bar for 10-12
~ 135 for 10
~ 225 for 6
~ 315 for 3
~ 405 for a single
then go from there with the shirt on getting about 10 working singles in the shirt. But that is only on shirted workouts, if we are doing a ME movement like floor presses with chains or band presses, I'll take the bar for a few then add the chains or bands take a few then start adding weight til I miss. Always going for a personal best on that movement. It still usually takes me around 10 working sets.So I would say 8-10 working sets whether singles doubles or triples is pretty decent.

As for tri work we always hit a heavy tri movement after we bench on both days. I like kettlebells extensions, and heavy dumbbell presses with palms facing each other and elbows tucked tight(I'll wrap a purple band around me while doing these for added tension at the top) I am also very big on V-bar pushdowns. I have down them for years and I know they are part of the reason my tris are so strong. I always did them back here at my home gym cause I thought Lou would not like seeing me doing them because they are more of a BB movement. But one day I seen Lou doing them and questioned him on them and he said to do them.So now I do them more also. We generally do about 4-5 sets on tris HEAVY all the time!!!! Do about 8-10 reps on each set.

Hope this helps, Wolfy!!!!!

I help out the local high school kids here alot and I always tell the good athletes to be cool to the not so good athletes cause they never know who or what they will become. Alot of kids just dont understand, you can only push someone so far and they are gonna snap, example School shootings!! These kids are never the super star jocks that are good at sports and get the popular chics. People can only take so much luckily enough I took my aggresion out in the weightroom, I actually thanked one guy one time. I told him if it was not for him giving me sh-it on a daily basis I would probably be some worthless bumb. I told him I took all the torment he gave me and bottled it up and let it loose in the gym and then i smiled at him and asked him if he was feeling froggy? That was what he always asked me "Feeling Froggy Today fatboy?" Hahaha that cracks me up, I actaully talk to him on regular basis now!!! But yeah I know how it feels to get push around and beat on.

so wolfe, honest question. how often do you westside boys go out and party and drink?

NickW
06-10-2006, 03:43 PM
Wolfe doesn't drink at all, some of the other westside guys drink once in a while :)

BUT....Mike only stays sober so he is still able to take advantage of any guy who happens to pass out at the bar he is at.

Hey who let him in here? Hahaha nice to see you here Nick :)

Stumprrp, I am only 5 foot 10. I'm a fat guy but I'm wide also.

GreatHuskie, very very seldom do I drink. I have been drunk maybe twice in the last yr and both times was here at my house. The most recent being last Friday night. Me and the new neighbor were hanging out and we got a little tipsy watching movies(well alot tipsy).

The other time being this past fall, we had a Tiki Party out back our house. Me and a buddy and his two friends "Jim and Coke" had a GOOD time. Funny story about that, We did not have any kids that night(Grandma's) so I thought I was gonna be 14 again took a Viagra (50 mg) well needless to say everyone did not leave as soon as expected.I kept drinking and drinking and the wife (who is 5 foot 2 and 130 pounds) told me my big ass better not pass out casue I'd be sleeping in the yard. Well no prob that night made it to the bed and passed out but the next morning we'll just say Daddy had to stay in the room and watch TV for about 3 hrs. Grandma brought home the kids around 10 am and I was not leaving that room anytime soon. Could of poked an eye out with that thing. So learn my lesson did I , do not drink and pass out while taking a Viagra cause it will only casue you hard ache in the mornings. No loving just had to wait for the effects to wear off. HAHAHA that sucked!!!!!

And on top of doing stupid stuff like that when I get drunk ,my real Dad was an alcholic who more or less drank himself to death so that deters me alot also, cause i already went down that path. When I drink it is til I pass out,nothing social about me. if I say one it turns to Twenty real fast. So i stay away, but some of the guys down there LOVE to party it up!!!

Wolfy!!!!

I would love to see you drunk sometime, I think it would be hilarious. I couldn't imagine how wild you would get at the Shang if you drank while you were there, lol.

Its nice seeing you over here too, since MM is down. I hope to see you and George pretty soon, all depends on how soon I start making some decent money.

Definitely stop by, I will be pissed if you don't. Let me know when it will be though. I am very busy that month with guest lifting and comps. If your interested, there is going to be a meet on the 19th of August in Chicago where some pretty big competition is going to be lifting at, it will definitely be a good meet.

Bigbadwolfe,
So, after reading your drinking stories, if I see you in a bar, it probably would NOT be a good idea to ask you "Feeling froggy today, fatboy?"...?

LOL! Wow, that guy deserved a pounding. It's a good thing you seem like a pretty even-tempered guy...
