    Solid speed session B!!! I like that idea with the bands. I've really been thinking about doing speed work again. I've never really gave it a shot since I've stopped lifting in gear. I'm debating on these or heavy incline presses for my next 8 week cycle.

    Thanks Nick. Pretty simple, so hopefully my pull starts moving again.

    Thanks Bri! More band tension also forces you to stay tight which I like. I can also spot a few form weaknesses also. For me, speed work helps both raw and geared lifting on bench.

    Big squattin' Bri. Very strong. Was that at Iron Sport? You are getting quite a crowd together by the sounds of it.
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Thanks Justin. Yea that was at Iron Sport. We had 12 guys squatting, so it was easier to break it down to 2 flights so you werent waiting around for a half hour for your next set. Good vibe on Saturday mornings there for sure.
