    I knew you were going to come back strong.
    That's ****ing awesome brother. Congrats, I wish I could have been there to see all of you. Just wasn't in the cards for me.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    Category: Sports


    Max Effort Bench Day BW 284lbs

    Bench Press with Reverse Green Band RAW

    135x10
    225x10
    315x5
    405x3
    455x1 (20lb PR)
    495x1 (60lb PR)

    Did something new. Kept Bands but put on shirt. Was really hard to touch but made all lifts touch.

    585x1
    615x1 (PR cause this is sumtn new lol)

    Took shirt off and just did some reps RAW with reverse bands

    365x10

    Felt really good to hold this weight out infront of me. I feel the the weight was hardest at lockout and that I can get this with no bands. Will prob be doing a bench only meet in 2wks. Will open with 551, 2nd 585 (12lb PR), 3rd 600lb. If I get 600lbs that will be a 27lb PR n just 4wks.

    Will do my accessory work 2marow.
