Treston Shull smashed a 900 squat and took 950 on a third, but just couldn't quite finish it. He benched 670 and I left before he pulled.
Dave Schwab I think ended up with a 805 squat and a 6 something bench - again I left before he pulled too.
I opened up with 730 and it was ugly, but 2 whites.
Second was 765, nailed it. 2 whites (one red for my butt I guess)
Third I went ahead and called for 800. It shot off my chest like a rocket and I came within about an inch from locking it out, but no dice. I called for the spotters to take it. Ah well. Next time.
I've put on 65lbs on my bench in the last 12 months so I'm happy with that.
PeteTheGreek got my attempts on video so he'll upload those sometime next week I expect.
a HUGE thanks to AtLarge Nutrition because they have been and continue to be my biggest supporters and play a huge role in my ability to continually hit PRs. Chris and Daniel are two of the best guys you'll meet. Thanks a lot guys.
Treston pulled 730, 2300 total
Great job today Trav
Congradulations guys! Thats some insane weights!
You're welcome, and great job Travis! Thanks for the update. Keep 'em coming.
Nice job Trav. The squat probably tired you out for the 800. You're knocking on the door buddy.
How did Pegg do? I'm dying to know his bench.
Wow, congrats to Travis and Treston... awesome job guys.

Thanks guys. I was so crazy close with 800 LOL it was a tad frustrating, but at the same time, I'd rather come that close than have it be stapled to me LOL. Time for me to lose some weight for the time being though
Vin, I think Pegg benched 600 something. His 915 squat was very nice, but I wasn't able to pay a ton of attention to his bench.
LOL I took a TON of crap about my squat and dead openers, but it's cool. It actually helped bring a lighter side to the meet for me and helped keep me calm and cool.
I actually came home tonight after deadlifting and have to do a bunch of work tomorrow, but I'll be sure to pass along any updates that get passed my way. I'll be back down there for Sundays lifting though.
The spotter on the right trains at Powerstation with Chris Smith, who told me the guy has tripled 585 raw in the gym. Very large dude
nice work Travis! congrats on the PR...a few more lockout sessions with the 3 brd and bands and that will go easy! lol

Wow! Good job Travis. Real close on the 800. I know you said you were going to drop some bw, but why not get the 800 first? You are so close. It'll be much harder if you lose weight.
Can't wait 'til tomorrow, 'cause I get stronger every day!
Nice work travis! 800 was close. Work your lock outs harder and you will hit that for sure next time out!
Nice lifting Travis. You are so close to 800!!!
