This was my last bench workout before heading into the first of my 3 meets I have planned for this summer.
Next weekend I will be benching at the NASA USA Nationals in Lancatser, Ohio.
I am aiming to hit between 535-550 in a single ply fury.
The other 2 meets I plan to lift in are the USAPL Bench Press Nationals and the IPF/NAPF North American Bench Press Championships in Costa Rica.
Thats the plan and we will see if happens.
505x5 Reverse Band Bench Press
The video is 2 sets of 505 Reverse Bands.
The first set is a double and the second set is a triple off a 2 board!
Enjoy and have a great day!

Awesome work Buffman!!!
Straightening out pipe cleaners for over 20 years.
Good video I love seeing your Dedication especially no handoff that is good benching but honestly you will go so much farther with a Spot and hand off if you were even to get your wife or anybody that can atleast take off about a 100 pounds or more when your benching intil you could get it over your chest. That way you can stay tight the whole way thru you are very strong but i think you would be a lot stronger if you had someone to handoff to you.Great work though and GodBless Brother looking forward to meeting you at the arnold.
I love watching your videos. "Five-oh-five, baby!!!" Great intensity.
good work man.
I should be at lancaster the 22 hopefully taking the 165 nasa raw record on the bench
Great work i personally dont and have never done rev. bands i really dont see the point. You look like a pretty strong guy. You really should use a spotter. You can never know what might happen to do that weight with out one Im sorry if I insult you but its stupid.

I agreee it would be nice to have a handoff person, but working at night and training at 3-5 in the morning makes getting a training partner difficult.
I really don't have problems with the unracking as it seems to make weights I get handoffs on in competitions much easier.
I don't think I ever have as much fun watching people lift weights as I do you buffman! You seem like a fun person to train with!
I would love to have a few training partners but lifting at 3 in the morning tends to be a tough sell.
Also I have missed several attempts over the years but so far the pins have served me well everytime.
I have strained my pec lifting before and just set the weight on the pins.
It didn't feel good, but was very safe.
Buffman does wear a shirt when he competes, I think he's just trying to get as close as he can since he doesn't wear a shirt in training because of a lack of training partners
i'm a big fan of reverse band benching. They are great for helping you develop speed and are a great deload exercise. We do them bout once a training cycle at Westside.
