Here's video from Saturday when I benched 700lbs. To be honest, watching the video, I still think I need to touch lower and push my belly up a little higher so I'll see what Vin has to say. Other than that I was pretty happy with the lift
Nice bench Travis!!!! Congrats!
good job Travis!!!

and actually if I remember correctly you wore a Double Phenom? if so, you do not need to touch lower, the phenom does not have that groove, touching lower is only to groove tight shirts correctly in order to touch effectively. That isn't needed for a Phenom because you do not need to run away from the chest plate, you need to bring it right down that chest plate to maximize the stretch.
You also need to upgrade that shirt to the SUPER phenom.

Great job. For those that weren't there, the 700 bench was very "hard" compared to his first two attempts. If you hit the groove you had on your first two, I'm sure you're good for more than 700 next time.
Travis that was beyond awesome.You killed it bro.
nice work! really strong lockout
Wow, man, that was really smooth! Your control of the weight is awesome! Great job, Travis!
hey travis where did u get the video of your bench ? im trying to see if any one had any video of my lifts
Looked perfect. Great position on the weight and a great push. Slowed a little at the top, but was never a question. Just keep up the hard work and those numbers will keep jumping. I'm really happy for you. I'll be watching you smash lifts for a long time from my rocking chair.
Hey David, not to hijack Travis's thread, but congratulations on the big bench. You looked like you had 800 in you.
great lift travis.. with a little more carry over and you could of got alot more from what i seen.... congrats....
Nice work travis. You hit your grove perfect. I wouldn't change anything. Now onto 800!
Great Bench Travis you earned it bro you worked extremlly hard for it.Now i gotta ask i dont know much about bench shirts but i keep seeing people talk about the phenom and super phenom.What is the differnce Is the super phenom more layers or just a overall stronger shirt.
WOAH clean lift man, that was real smooth. Do you use that wide of a grip while benching raw too, or is that just to get more out of your shirt?
Really nice lift Travis.
