    You should bro, just for fun. 1700 is possible, just got to get your deadlift moving. I've been giving alot of thought about training in gear after this meet in August. If training goes well, I'll do a geared meet early next year.

    5/6 Bench opener

    TRAINWRECK of a training session. Worked up to 625 to a 1 brd and got really wobbly coming off chest. Threw me off and spotters took it about 5 inches off chest. Just went to 675 full range. Jacked the shit out of the shirt. First attempt bar rolled in my hand on the way down. Told spotters to take it. Second attempt i slid up the bench and flattened out. Again told them to take it. I was fucking pissed. Just called it and will wait to the meet when i get on a better bench. Im a meet lifter anyway. Not going to stew on it.
