All,

Just got 260x1 tonight paused... 10lb PR for me. I'd love to hit this in my meet in a few weeks.

That's sick bro! It's not even like you are built to bench. Skinny with long arms like me, only your bench owns mine. Nice job and GL at the meet.

Damn I hate you people with freaky bench press.
It makes me feel extremely weak :(

Congrats though.

I'm with skinny. Your bench rails mine, and you have the same proportions as me!

Thanks guys! This is the strongest I've been since I hurt my shoulder back in March... feeling very good about it. Ever since I've been taking videos of my lifts I feel like my form has improved a lot. Like here I notice that my arch is terrible!!

That was an awesome bench, there, man. I'd say you'll be good for 260 at the meet, or whatever is the closest metric equivalent (if it's a few lbs higher, I'd try for the slight PR). Work on that arch!

I do. :)

Haha... you can tell when I unrack it that my arch deteriorates substantially. I'll work on this some more tomorrow and next week.

To the rest of you all that say I'm skinny... I'm not. If you think I am... then clearly you don't know what the word skinny means. ;) Seriously... a bunch of haters because I'm not ripped or big. :D

Fantastic press. To keep your arch intact really drive you upper back and traps into the bench before you lift off. Then with the help of your spotter just squeeze the bar out of the racks, this should help keep your back tight which will help keep the arch.

Haha face it man. You're skinny, I'm skinny, heck Chris Rodgers is skinny. Doesn't mean we can't be strong lol. Sadly I don't have that either.

Big bench, so close to double bodyweight. Just a question, would that pass in a comp? Either way, good luck at your meet and you're a strong "skinny" dude.

EDIT: Just watched the vid again and you look a lot bigger than 135.

Thanks man... I think it would pass in a meet. I had the weight paused before pushing it back up. I hope to cut some weight down to 132.3... I'm currently weighing 136-137 during the day. Many people have told me I look bigger than what I weigh.
