    You do know he has pins in case it fails :P
    I remember a vid when the bar dropped on him and I thought he was going to die until I saw the pins.

    Nice pressing there. Good to see strong fellow Jews, where I'm from they are all 5'6 130 pounds.

    Great benching. I love your videos. How come you never take any deadlift or squat vidoes?

    I remember that vid, I was horrified until he slid out from under it and the bar didn't move.

    Good work buffman, great strength and intensity.

    Thanks Erik

    I appreciate the response, but I do have the pins set in the rack to catch the weight should I miss a lift.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks Runty

    I appreciate you comments.
    I try and bring a little energy/enthusisasm to the garage gym when I train.
    Doing so just makes it a lot more enetertaining than just lifting wieghts.

    Well at least I think it does?

    Have a great day!

    Thanks Invain

    If you will look closely there are pins set just below my chest that catch the weight when I miss, which does happen occasionally.

    Here is a video where I missed on the 2nd and 3rd sets with 415.

    I do have the pins sets to catch the weight.

    As for being Jewish, I am not but I am a strong supporter of ISRAEL and a believer in Yeshua the Messiah.
    That is the reason for the Israeli Flag.

    Thank You for asking and Shalom Aleikhem!
