You could get 275x1 for sure if someone helped you take it off the rack.

man, if i saw you in the weight room i would never say 260 x 3. sick. maybe you could have gotten the 4th if you wouldnt have banged the 2nd rep on the rack. awesome pressing!

Also would of possibly gotten him the last rep if he had a spotter help him off the rack. But great work man. Im not sure I could even lift 260 of the rack by myself much less bench press it.

Pretty solid. At first I thought you were going to do it flat foot, flat back. Good work.

wth, no offense cuz it's impressive, but it looked like there was no way you could even unrack the bar let alone press it 3 times. good job.

nice pressing man. i definetely think you have 275 in you.

If he can do 260 for 3, he should be good for at least 280-285 for a 1RM.

Bako - How tall are you?

u are pretty damn strong for your size in my opinion

Guido

You have some really weird looking plates at your gym, BTW. Looks like it would be tough to get more than 5 plates per side on there.

Looking at it again I'd say you really need to work on keeping your butt on the bench. Perhaps working more on your arch and setup would help. I think you'd put up even more weight if you did that and it will save your lower back some soreness and possible injury.

Bako Lifter

Guido - Ya, I hate those plates. I usually have a pretty sweet arch :p, but I can't do it with no lift off. That was like "half way" form right there. I'll post my next PR when I have a spotter. There's a big difference. :D

But, yes, I agree I need to work on it, but it's usually not at all that bad.

holy crap, I can't believe what I'm watching. Incredible benching man, you do move your body a lot while lifting the weight though.
