    Just eat clean for a while, aim for over 200g of protein a day -if you can't do that with food, get some whey. Supplements are just that, a supplement to a decent diet. Get what you can from food...

    I'm not in the US so don't know the specific manufacturers (but if I were I'd look up the company that provides Elite with their racks) and just got them to make a rack a bit shorter so it would fit...

    Nope, that is Travis' RAW bench, his gear whore number is late 800s I believe. Either way, the guy is a fucking beast in the moderately fat ass weight class (242s I think?). Anyway, reason I chimed...
