Today we did double purple bands on a 2brd and then at the end of the workout I did 455 for reps. The shirt set is 585lbs with 200lbs of band tension (785lbs at the top) Going from 200lbs of band tension, to no band tension was a little odd haha. I'll do this for reps again in a few weeks
I left a little in the tank in the shirt because I want to attempt to hit that same weight on a 1brd next week and then off the chest.
Nice work, Travis! I tried the doubled purples last week and the tension is crazy!

strong lifting man. really strong repping of 455
Nice work Travis! But I have to say I was more impressed by the guy doing militariy presses on the smith machine next to you! LOL!
HAHA! I never noticed that either! His reps get progressively slower and then he just stops. Me, the guy holding the boards and the guy doing my handouts are pretty much the only powerlifters in the gym so they don't have a real good concept of what strength is out there.
you watch, Ryan is going to post a video of him doing 5 reps with 455 now....hahaha
Nice Work man that shirt bench was good what type of shirt do you use? and that raw bench looked very strong great work travis
Nice work sir. You remind me that I have to put more band work in. I am going to start using them next month after my meet.
Nice Work Bro!! Smooth and Clean Reps!!
Ain't Nothin 2 It But 2 Do It!
Don't get to hooked on the bands in a shirt they are great for lock out work but will throw your groove off full range. You want a big bench in a shirt then bench in training like you would a meet with straight weight.
nice work travis!
